The Accelerator Programme with CFNI and NICVA
The Accelerator programme is for organisations in the voluntary and community and social enterprise sector, their volunteers, board members and staff. The aim is to equip organisations to move to their next stage of development and to strengthen them to thrive within the current environment. The programme focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to be well governed and compliant, as well as on how to improve how they fundraise and be innovative in their approach.
The programme is going really well so far. Between September and December we held 7 webinars and over 200 people attended from over 100 organisations. If you missed these sessions you can find the recordings below.
