Sector Connector Offers of the Month: December 2018

Carney Consulting Ltd is offering a free place for voluntary organisations on their Mental Health First Aid course which runs across the year. At a time when there is a need for voluntary organisations to support people with increasingly complex issues, this two day course will help participants to spot the early signs of a mental health issue to feel confident in offering help and support to people with a range of mental health issues.

There are seven courses planned for 2019 but as the number of free training places are limited, please contact Ian Dodds now if you are interested in this opportunity.


Avant Homes is dedicating an entire day to helping out community projects on 12 June 2019 and will close down its building sites for the day to allow teams of construction workers to use their skills to help voluntary organisations across the North East. If you have a building project that they could help out with and that could be completed in a day (for example, installation of a new kitchen, creation of a disabled toilet, external walls etc.) please provide details to Ian Dodds by the end of January. Avant Homes office staff will also be able to help out with any other community projects on 12 June.

Details of new Sector Connector workshops for 2019 have now been announced – read more and book your place here
