Free Charity Training A Hit

Free training courses for charities are helping them to meet modern regulations and standards.

The most-recent session was held at the KGV over two hours on Friday and was a full house, attended by a wide array of charitable organisations.

It was organised by the Guernsey Community Foundation and included two presentations focusing on insurance requirements and health and safety guidance. 

Two industry professionals donated their time to the seminar, which was free to attend, with all costs covered by the guest speakers and the Guernsey Community Foundation.

Joni Nettleship is the Third Sector Liaison Officer for the Community Foundation. She works directly with charities to help them meet their aims and this includes providing training courses.

"Charities are trying to provide services and support to the Guernsey community and very often they are doing it with very little money and not much time and not many staff," said Ms Nettleship. "So my role is really to support them. 

 I work with the charities and help them with governance so that they are confident and competent in essential areas."

The guest speakers at Friday's training session were Gareth Le Page from Channel Insurance Brokers and Jonathan Coyde from CopCoy, health and safety advisors. The sessions were well received with great feedback from attendees,

 

Future GCF sessions are 'How to Become an LBG' with Helen Gains and Safeguarding with the ISCP. For further details email [email protected]
