Building Effectiveness 2019

Nine high potential organisations benefited from a tailored, supported development programme.

In it's third year the Building Effectiveness Programme was funded by Will Hobhouse (High Sheriff of Hertfordshire in 2017) and a number of other Hertfordshire Community Foundation's fundholders.

The programme was managed by HCF Training and Development and delivered in partnership with the Cranfield Trust.

The organisations that successfully completed the 2019 programme were:
ASCEND
Citizens Advice East Herts
Citizens Advice North Hertfordshire
Citizens Advice Stevenage
Community Learning Partnership
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.
Information about the experience of those who participated in previous Building Effectiveness programmes is available via these links:
