Other Community Groups

CAN works alongside a number of other organisations within Northumberland to offer support community groups and voluntary organisations.

Northumberland Community Voluntary Action (formally known as Wansbeck CVS) is currently funded by Northumberland County Council to offer a range of introductory level services, many of which are free to community groups.  Areas covered include organisational development for new and emerging community groups, fundraising, and volunteer management as well as back office support.  For more details of NCVA's services please see their website.

For community organisations looking for more bespoke services to help them through a period of development or change, CAN is able to offer  a wide range of bespoke training and consultancy services, specialising in areas including business / project planning, fundraising strategies, user involvement and community consultation.  We seek to keep the costs of these services as low as possible, and we may currently be able to offer some support free of charge through the Village SOS programme
