Helping local groups and organisations to develop is a major part of the work of High Peak CVS. This development work has wide-ranging aspects, such as help with: setting a group up for a specific activity; developing the structure of the group; applying for funding; training for various skills; advice and information.
High Peak CVS helps with specific types of groups through the dedicated development workers:
Specialises in support to small voluntary and community groups in the High Peak, particularly those who are disadvantaged, marginalised or rurally isolated and have no paid worker. Development worker Liz Fletcher undertakes this extensive work.
High Peak CVS can offer arts development support to community groups, festivals and creative industries in the High Peak. Nigel Caldwell takes the lead on this work.
If you would like to talk through the help you may need, see the Contact Us page for the individual phone numbers and email addresses of the development workers.
