Volunteers honoured in ceremony

Members of voluntary organisations have been rewarded after completing a course covering ‘Governance in the Voluntary Sector’.

Wansbeck CVS staff and members of the voluntary and community sector attended a presentation evening to receive level two certificates.

Eleven participants attended six weeks of training in the Wansbeck CVS offices in Station Road, Ashington, as part of the course.

All said the course was worthwhile and improved their knowledge in the key principles of good governance.

The course covered management committee roles and responsibilities, delegation, dealing with conflict, strategic planning, legal status, the data protection act and volunteering.

If anyone would like further information on funding advice or project development, they can contact Carolyn or Andrea at Wansbeck CVS on (01670) 858688.
