Last autumn I did some funding training under the Skills Pledge Plus Programme (run by VOLA) with St Cleopas, The Christ Church Youth and Community Centre and my old contacts at The Honeyrose Foundation. Now some new clients have now requested similar training.
So over the next couple of months I’ll be meeting some new, interesting people, doing worthwhile and supportive work in the local community, at Chrysalis Domestic Violence services, Merseyside Coalition for Inclusive Living (MCIL) and Merseyside Refugee & Asylum Seekers Pre & Post Natal Group (MRANG)
This upturn in demand for this funding training, and for tender readiness training, must be a reflection of how the economic climate is adversely affecting the third sector. Certainly, those I’m speaking to are really feeling the pinch, and I’m sure many will have to severely cut their much-needed services, or may even disappear.
