VCS Training Programme Calendar Feb-April 2020
VCS Training Programme Calendar Feb-April 2020


The HCF Training Calendar aims to enable voluntary and community organisations to:
  • Be well run (Governance, Management, Business skills)

  • Operate safely and legally (Safeguarding, Health and Safety, First Aid)

  • Become sustainable (Income generation, Marketing/Communications/Social Media)



We also aim to support organisations so they are able to thrive in the changing landscape. In particular we need to develop skills that will ensure organisations are equipped to deliver vital preventative services in the community and able to operate in an environment of personal budgets, direct payments and social prescribing. Organisations need to become more enterprising with improved business skills.
Our 2019-20 VCS Training Programme is now live and you can browse for courses via the course themes below.
