Thank you everyone for all of this so far – it’s really interesting to see how you’ve all figured things out!
I wanted to ask about the ways that groups can develop people. Have you found that your group has had the chance to provide training to members of the community? Have you taken any training yourself to keep your group ticking along?
Is there any help in developing your volunteers that you think funders or large organisations could provide?
It would be really interesting to hear about any training people have found useful but also any informal ‘on the job’ learning that people feel they’ve benefitted from. We found a range of development needs including leading and managing a groups. Unsurprisingly we also found that groups find it hard to focus on personal development because of time, resources and not knowing where to look to get the support they need.
