Free Skills Development & Training for LGBT+ Groups and Organisations

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 - 17:00

Join us for a short online information session to find out more about a new free programme of skills development and training for LGBT+ Groups and Organisations!  

Funded by the Government Equalities Office, this Programme will offer a range of training sessions, online learning opportunities, practical resources and tailored 1:1 support to ensure that all LGBT+ Organisations can make lasting change and make a big impact (and learn how to measure it!) 

The Programme will cover a range of practical topics including: 

Organisational Development:

Good Governance
Developing Strategies and planning
Financial Accountability
Income Diversification

Skills Development:

Monitoring and Impact Measurement
Bid Writing
Developing your Organisation's Influence
Growing your Organisation, developing new services and Human Resources 
Diversifying your Audience and involving beneficiaries and service users

We will be working with our delivery partners: Stonewall, UK Pride Organisers Network, The Proud Trust, Yorkshire MESMAC, Traverse and BiPhoria to deliver focused, practical support to LGBT+ groups and organisations across England. This will include a series of 1 day conferences specifically for small, volunteer led LGBT+ Groups. 

All groups and organisations that wish to engage with all or part of the Skills Development and Training Programme will need to book a 1:1 with one of our Engagement Team, to plan how you can get the most out of the options available for your LGBT+ Group.  

To kick off the programme we will be running a series of 30 minute online information sessions so that you can find out more about the programme and how your organisation can benefit:  

  • 1:30pm or 6pm Tuesday 23rd April
