Skills Development and Training Programme

Consortium want to ensure that all LGBT+ Organisations have access to skills development and training so that they can drive their organisations forward. We will be running a Skills Development and Training Programme alongside our LGBT+ Futures Fund Grants but you don't have to have a grant to benefit.

This free Programme will offer a range of training, resources, 1:1 support and peer learning to ensure that all LGBT+ Organisations can make lasting change and make the most impact with their resources.

Details of the full programme will be released in March but if you can't wait that long then don't forget that LGBT+ Organisations that are Members of Consortium can access a range of support from our Engagement Team all year around. 

LGBT+ Organisations operating across the country can access the Programme, you don't have to be a Member of Consortium and you don't have to have a grant from the LGBT+ Futures Fund. 

All Organisations that are awarded an LGBT+ Futures Fund Grant will engage in the Skills Development and Training programme in which ever way is most useful for them. Applicants will be asked which areas their organisation would benefit from developing skills in as part of the application.

Organisations can select to receive support and skills development in one or more of the following areas:  

Organisational Development

  • Good Governance
  • Successful Strategies
  • Financial Accountability
  • Income Diversification & Fundraising

Skills Development

  • Monitoring and Impact Measurement
  • Making a Good Case and Developing your Organisations Influence
  • Growing your Organisation
  • Diversifying your Audience

The Programme will be delivered by Consortium and a range of partners from across the Sector.
