Me (CW) and Polly back in 2010 in Wales.

I have been involved in the not-for-profit sector since 2001 working for councils for voluntary service (covering Staffordshire and Walsall), a volunteer bureau, a grant writer for a grief counselling organization and as a freelance consultant.

As a provider of advice, guidance, information and training. I have worked on projects supporting community and voluntary groups and social enterprises on a wide range of topics.

  • Information Technology (how to use it to make your business more efficient).
  • Supported Volunteering (for people with extra support needs).
  • Funding (applications, strategies, sources).
  • Community Engagement (in areas of deprivation and low community activity)
  • Social Enterprise (promoting the concept and aiding groups to start-up ventures)
  • Organizational Development (funding, business & project planning, organization set-up, governance, marketing &c).

My higher level qualifications include; University Graduate Certificate in Community Practice for the Voluntary Sector, Post Graduate Certificate of Education in Business Studies and Information Technology, Graduate Diploma in Law and a BA (Hons) Economics.
