Group support

Voluntary Action Broxtowe helps and supports voluntary and community groups throughout Broxtowe. We are available to meet groups to find out more about the work they are involved with, and to advise how Voluntary Action Broxtowe can support them. To arrange a meeting please phone 0115 9178080 or e-mail office@vabroxtowe.org.uk.

We can offer support and advice in the following areas:

Setting up a new group

If you are looking at setting up a new community group or Charity, then we can advise you on all the areas you need to consider such as writing a constitution, setting up a bank account, forming a committee etc.

Funding advice

We can help groups identify the right funding streams to match their funding requirements. In addition we can help groups complete funding application forms or compose letters to send to funders. Once we are aware of your organisations funding requirements, we can keep you updated on any new funding available.

Policy work

If you need help producing policies we are here to assist you. Many smaller groups find this area of work daunting and more and more funders are now insisting that you have certain policies before they will fund you. If you need help to produce your policies we have a number of templates which you can adapt to suit the needs of your group.

Help with Annual General Meetings (AGMs)

We help lots of smaller group organize their AGM’s, as the first time can seem very daunting. Or you may not be quite sure of procedures and need someone just to Chair for you. We have assisted many small local groups in this way.
