In the present political and economic climate, government – and particularly local government – is looking more and more to the voluntary sector to deliver its services. This is both an opportunity and a challenge for the sector. Government has a statutory duty to ensure that it gets value for money and so it demands ever increasing standards of professionalism from the voluntary organisations with which it engages.
Organisations have shown that they accept this challenge and are placing evermore emphasis on training and development for their volunteers. There can be a problem however, because management training companies geared up for commercial and industrial operations are not always appropriate for the voluntary sector.
Here at EvolveRight we understand that volunteers give their time because they want to make a contribution to the work of their particular charity, but they are doing it from choice and it needs to be an enjoyable experience. This calls for a particular approach to both management and leadership training. In addition we understand that voluntary organisations do not have the same financial resources as commercial undertaking and have to operate on very tight budgets.
Whatever the size of your organisation and whatever your training needs you will get sympathetic advice and quality development from EvolveRight.
