Somerset Skills Bank

Would you like your organisation to be able to access a wealth of skills and expertise for free?

We're working in partnership with SOMERSET COMMUNITY FOUNDATION and ENGAGE to offer local VCSE organisations the opportunity to benefit from the wealth of business know-how that's available in Somerset.  Using our combined expertise, we will assess and match up organisations to work together.

Businesses might help in the following ways:

Specialist mentoring
Experts giving their time on an ad hoc basis or over a short period of time to mentor charities through specific projects or issues. This may range from how to improve finance systems to how to create a new website or navigate an aspect of charity law.

Trustees
Bringing fresh vision and new skills into your board.

Expert Skills Workshops
Workshops on a specialist subject, such as digital marketing, auditing, health and safety, or strategy development. This might be specifically for your organisation or a group of organisations with similar needs.

We can also help you identify your organisation's specific needs.
