Support for Groups

 

Supporting groups to build skills and sustainability is an activity key to  the regeneration of the West Itchen area.
It is the core task of our Project Development Officer, Gulzar Sharif.

 

Our approach is to develop the confidence and skills of local people so that they can run successful organisations within their communities. This strategy will ensure that ownership of projects remain with the organisations responsible for identifying needs, which will be based on local priorities.

 

We also offer:

 

Finance

 

We act as an ‘enabler’ by helping organisations navigate the process of searching for funding, and teach them the skills necessary for applying for funds; controlling and monitoring their project; fulfilling reporting requirements; and developing sustainable ongoing services through the development of enterprising activity.¬† We act as an adviser and monitor not only helping you acquire funding, but also providing assistance to ensure that you are able to meet your objectives and funding requirements.

 

See our Grants page to learn more about funding.

 

Premises for the voluntary sector

 

West Itchen Community Trust’s property portfolio is managed commerically to support the activities of the organisation and contribute to local development, however we also house other voluntary organisations in subsidised workspace. We provide quality office space at affordable prices and favourable terms.

 

To see premises availability see our Property pages or contact Suzanne Longhurst on 023 8038 1064 or property@wict.co.uk

 

Networks

 

We are able to help individuals make links into existing voluntary and community networks so as to encourage peer learning.  We also fund the development of new networks and training for these groups where specialist support is required. We work closely with Tenants & Residents Associations to encourage increased communication between individual associations.

To find out how we can support your group or organisation, call the office and contact Gulzar on 023 8038 8580 or info@wict.co.uk
