BIG Assist Programme open to suppliers - 20 September 2012

Launching in November 2012, the programme aims to strengthen local and specialist infrastructure organisations by offering a targeted support programme; applications for suppliers are now open.

Applications are now being accepted from suppliers that can demonstrate quality services and experience of delivering support to the voluntary sector in the following areas:

  • Strategy, planning and managing change.
  • Financial sustainability.
  • Innovation, new products and ways of working.
  • Marketing and building relationships.
  • Supporting and developing people & organisational culture.

Through the programme, infrastructure organisations will be able to apply for vouchers to buy support through BIG Assist. Once awarded a voucher, organisations will be able to view and select support of their choice from the list of approved Assist suppliers.

For further information see the Big Assist website or contact Assist Community Officers Davinder and Marie either by email or by phone (0207 520 2441).

A scheme page will be available at the governmentfunding website when funding and support becomes available from suppliers.
