NNS Capacity Building – Training opportunities for local community assets

Published on 10 August 2020

Hall Green NNS has a small pot of money that will enable us to offer training opportunities to community organisations, groups or individuals who provide activities/ services to citizens aged 50 and over that are aimed at improving their health and wellbeing.

The purpose of the training and support programme is to enable community groups and organisations to improve, sustain and grow their existing offer which older people can benefit from.

We are reaching out to local community assets to see if they would be able to deliver that training over the next few months. The areas of training we are looking at commissioning are:

  • Digital inclusion, culture and capability
  • Volunteering
  • Safeguarding
  • Funding
  • Community organisation business and governance support
  • Marketing and Promoting
  • Health and Wellbeing (specific topics).

Please download the Expression of Interest Form below which gives specific details of the areas of training we are looking to commission local organisations to deliver. Our initial focus will be to provide training on bid writing and mental health. However, if there are others areas you can support with please indicate so on the form.

We aim to commission training providers from community assets who have the necessary experience and expertise. Where possible we would like to commission organisations who are based within the constituency, however we may have to extend our reach if the need arises.

The maximum amount of funding a provider can receive is £5,000 for delivering a training activity for up to three months and an organisation can only receive one amount of funding in a 12 month period. We will be looking to obtain three quotes for each area of training.

If you would like to express an interest please complete and return the form to HallGreenNNSTeam@accordgroup.org.uk by the 26 August 2020.

Please contact us if you need further information and we look forward to hearing from you.
