Capacity building support for Camden’s voluntary and community sector

We recognise that the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) faces difficulties in the context of unprecedented financial challenges and huge changes in the landscape of public and VCS delivery. We  recognise and value the role of capacity building services in ensuring that the borough has a robust, diverse and capable VCS that can meet changing needs and market demands.

We have decided to commission capacity building services on an interim basis whilst we explore with stakeholders including the VCS what type of capacity building services to commission in the longer term. So for now the following services are available to Camden’s VCS through Voluntary Action Camden.

Organisational development support to VCS with income of less than £100,000

  • Signposting to a range of support and information
  • Diagnostic and organisational development support through face-to-face consultancy (eg on governance, policies, constitution, employment)
  • Bi-monthly funding application workshops
  • In depth one-to-one bid-writing support
