Whatever your query we hope that you'll be able to find the
answer in our extensive range of information sheets on a wide
variety of topics, or in one of the publications that we have
produced to help voluntary organisations in Wales. You can access
all of the information sheets and publications in the advice and guidance
section of our website.
Whether you're a voluntary or community group that needs just a
few hundred pounds for a local event or many thousands of pounds to
purchase a community building, WCVA's funding advice service offers
advice, training and support to help organisations to become
financially sustainable. The Wales Third Sector Funding
Portal provides a wide range of information resources
and funding advice to help you take on the funding challenge and
improve your chances of success.
We offer a wide range of training courses and events across
Wales, including short courses, accredited learning, workshops,
conference and seminars on current issues affecting the third
sector in Wales. You can find details of forthcoming training and
events in your area, and how you can book places at any of them, by
going to the training and
events section of our website.
Trustees and governance
We offer a dedicated area of our website to helping those people
who have responsibility for managing and administering voluntary
organisations, as a trustee of a charity. If you are a trustee of
an newly registered charity take a look at what
we can offer you, including information sheets
specifically tailored to trustees' needs, a range of publications
and useful tools, and details of how you can have your say about
issues that are important to you.
WCVA's specialist volunteering team can offer help and advice to
those with responsibility for managing volunteers or to anyone with
an interest in volunteering issues. This includes information
services, resources, projects, details of how to find the latest
volunteering opportunities, and much more. You can see what the
volunteering team has to offer you right here.
If your new charity will be working at local or county level,
then county voluntary
councils (CVCs) are a further source of help.
CVCs work at local and county level, and offer a range of
practical services, expert guidance and development support. They
work with charities, voluntary and community groups, social
enterprises, trustees and individual volunteers. Many CVCs also
host volunteer centres, so if you would like to talk to someone who
supports organisations that work with volunteers, you can contact
or visit your local volunteer centre.
