Training and events

Connected Voice offers a wide range of training and events to help you develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to run your organisation effectively, and enable you to make the differences you want to see in your community happen.

Most of these are for VCSE (Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise) organisations serving Gateshead or Newcastle or both, and delivered free. Some are open more widely across the region. Check the session description for details of eligibility.

Our training sessions cover a wide range of essential topics from improving your fundraising to taking action on climate emergency.

"As a community training provider we know how much goes into developing a complex programme of events and the team at Connected Voice have been spectacular at organising and delivering some cogent sessions around fundraising and bid writing that our staff have found to be a valuable resource."
“Sound advice and straightforward. Informed about all different types of funding”


We run six Networking Events each year, each on a specific topical theme, bringing local VCSE organisations together, to share information and connect with each other.
