TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Building Effectiveness 2019

An exciting opportunity for up to 10 high potential organisations to benefit from a tailored, supported development programme.

We are now into year 3 of the Building Effectiveness Programme. It will be funded by Will Hobhouse (High Sheriff of Hertfordshire in 2017) and a number of other Hertfordshire Community Foundation's fundholders. It is managed by HCF Training and Development and delivered in partnership with the Cranfield Trust.

The organisations participating in the 2019 programme are:
ASCEND
Citizens Advice East Herts
Citizens Advice North Hertfordshire
Citizens Advice Stevenage
Community Learning Partnership
Druglink
Earthworks St. Albans
Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust
Home-Start Hertfordshire
Redbourn Care Group

The photo below was taken at the first leadership workshop held at Tewinbury Farm on 24th April. It was a chance for their representatives to meet each other, introduce their Building Effectiveness projects and receive advice about how to make the most of all the opportunities available via this innovative programme.
We look forward to working with them all and wish them all the best for an exciting and challenging year ahead!
