Workshops planned to help volunteers

As part of Trustees’ Week 2019 which runs from November 4-8 Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council (DVSC) will be holding a series of workshops around good governance, fundraising and volunteering.

As the membership body for volunteers, voluntary and community groups, third sector organisations and social enterprises, DVSC is taking part in UK wide celebrations for Trustees’ Week which will involve a number of interesting workshops for trustees and a celebratory shout out.

Helen Wilkinson, DVSC’s chief executive, said: “Trustees' Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.

"Throughout the week we are hosting workshops on the NCVO Code of Good Governance and the Fundraising Code of Practice. We have partnered up with WCVA to deliver workshops on gaining the Trusted Charity Mark and the Investing in Volunteers accreditation.

"Trustees’ Week is also a great opportunity to say thank you to trustees. We encourage all our members to give a shout out to their trustees who give their time voluntarily and make an enormous contribution to the third sector in Denbighshire."

All workshops will be at the DVSC headquarters in the Naylor Leyland Centre, Well Street, Ruthin, LL15 1AF.
