Capacity Building Programme
What is the Capacity Building Programme?
The capacity building programme aims to support the VCCS to ensure it is a robust sector. The programme focuses on the Voluntary, Community and Cultural Sector focused training and development, trustee recruitment and corporate sector volunteering support.
We also offer trustee and skills match programmes, matching individuals who would like to donate their time and skills to the community groups that need them the most.
"Volunteering comes in many forms"
Meet Radhika Srinivasan, one of our dedicated Trustees who embraced the opportunity to volunteer her professional skills through our Capacity Building programme.
A word from Michaela
"As a Capacity Building Manager, my role involves building the capacity of the Voluntary, Community and Cultural Sectors (VCCS) of Milton Keynes, by recruiting a diverse range of trustees to broaden the lived experience of organisations.
I also work in utilising skilled volunteering from within the corporate sector to support good governance across the VCCS."
"It's a nice way to give that knowledge back to the community"
"We were so pleased with the support we had from our friends at MK Community Foundation. We needed to find another board member for our small LGBTQ+ charity to help us with some skills and experience gaps, and we were delighted by the person put forward. I’m happy to say that we’ve recently confirmed her as a full board member and are confident that we’ve now got an even better team to keep the charity growing. Thank you so much for your help!"
TJ Richards - Chair, Board of Trustees, Q:alliance.
