Specialist support for Third Sector groups and organisations

The Thriving Third Sector programme is all about developing resilience in voluntary organisations.

The project aims to provide enhanced and additional support to Trustees, Directors and committee members across Powys to understand their roles by providing information and training on organisational governance.

The aim of the project is to help your organisation identify potential problems early on, and equip you with the knowledge you require to prevent them developing.

Proactive Resilience Support Package

If you have identified that your organisation or group requires assistance, we can provide a proactive and intensive wrap around service, embracing all or any of the following:

  • Governance
  • Finances
  • Structure
  • Staffing
  • Business Planning
  • Policies and procedures
  • And much more

Support is available for all types and size of organisation in Powys - and whether you are just setting up or are an organisation of long standing.

Good governance is all about reviewing how you operate and identifying potential issues before they develop. The project can help you review organisational structure and practices so that you are fit for purpose and ready to face any challenges the future may bring.

Crisis Management

Hopefully your organisation will be able to avoid a crisis developing. But crises can come in many different forms and scale. Knowledgeable staff or trustees can fall ill or leave, austerity measures might make a hole in the finances of the organisation; key people may fall out. Whatever the crisis, the Thriving Third Sector programme has additional support that can help:

  • identify the root cause of the problem
  • provide an intensive level of support
  • help with the development of an action plan
  • provide hands on assistance to sort out financial or structural issues.
