Community CVS delivers training to both volunteers and voluntary and community groups. We can also point you in the direction of external training providers for both individuals and groups. Sign up to our bulletin to get the latest information on training.
Recovery Access Point Training
Our Recovery Access Point (RAP) training is designed for people that wish to join Community CVS as peer support volunteers in our programmes that support vulnerable people facing severe disadvantages. This is a 5 day training programme run on a quarterly basis. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer and taking part in the RAP training please contact Bev Marsden.
Community CVS periodically puts on workshops in which we invite funders to come to speak to groups. We can also point you in the direction of other sources of training on making funding applications and project planning that are either on-line or delivered by local partners. If you’d like to be informed when these are available, sign up to our bulletin.
There are a number of our partners who deliver excellent training for volunteers and groups in the borough: –
- Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council Sustainable Neighbourhoods Service – Community Learning Courses.
- Blackburn College run courses from entry level to post graduate level.
- Accrington and Rossendale College have a community classes programme and will deliver classes in Blackburn with Darwen. They can advise about funding for higher level courses for volunteer managers and community leaders.
- The National Council for Voluntary Organisations has an on-line learning section where courses are free for members or alternatively can be purchased for a small fee.
