Organisational Training

 ‘I really enjoyed the training. It was informative and matched what I needed to know about fundraising. It was in context of the work that I do and also the trainers were knowledgeable, friendly and delivered the session effectively.
It has also given me food for thought about where I may need to develop further.’
From a bespoke training session delivered to Impact Housing


‘I recently attended the Handling Challenges When managing Volunteers day at Redhills, Penrith, and I wanted to say a big thank you to CVS for organising it. I was initially a bit apprehensive about it but, as the day progressed, I found the discussions and suggestions really helpful, both from the facilitator and the other participants, and even something as simple as being reminded to have confidence in my own ability and judgement was invaluable.  So, THANK YOU!’
