Community Groups Get A Helping Hand
10:42am 20th June 2013
Community groups are used to helping others - but now it's time for them to get some help.
Dorset Community Action's running a special workshop in Weymouth today. (20 June)
The free event in Chickerell will tell volunteers how to promote their group as well as giving them advice on fundraising.
Hannah Solloway of DCA explains that it should be a great opportunity to network informally with others. 'We hope that people will come along to share issues and concerns, and learn from each other. We will also be outlining the support available from Dorset Community Action, which covers topics like choosing a formal structure for your organisation, developing a fundraising strategy, and the roles of trustees. Our service ranges from providing free factsheets and telephone advice, to low cost training courses and bespoke training and consultancy services.'
