Training for voluntary and community organisations

We recognise the incredible contribution made by local Voluntary and Community Sector organisations (VCS) in helping people during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

We know that demand on local VCS organisations is increasing and that is having an impact on staffing.

Organisations and individuals are having to adapt and stay ahead of frequent policy changes in a stressful and emotionally challenging environment.

In order to help the sector, the council is supporting VCS organisations with free access to volunteers through our volunteering hub with Volunteer Centre Tower Hamlets.

We continue to signpost the sector towards local, regional, and national grant schemes, which can help organisations in Tower Hamlets with unexpected costs, loss of income, or new projects.

Support around Covid-19 and digital inclusion training is also available through local, regional, and national programmes. These can help organisations in Tower Hamlets build capacity and become more resilient and financially sustainable.

This page outlines some of the training opportunities available for VCS organisations in Tower Hamlets.

Please contact Tower Hamlets Council for Voluntary Service (THCVS) for any advice and support.

THCVS is offering its member organisations high-quality training, workshops, courses, and events courses to help them grow stronger and more resilient as organisations.
