We know how tough the pandemic has been for local communities and the local voluntary sector. We’ve done all we can to help – for example, we’ve moved our training online, and since September all courses have been available free.
RedbridgeCVS members: Training to remain free
Training will continue to be free for local groups which are members of RedbridgeCVS, and for their staff, trustees and volunteers. Training also remains free for our individual members. Over 300 groups are currently members, and free membership is open to any voluntary organisation which is based in Redbridge or works with Redbridge people. You can get more details and apply for membership here.
While courses remain free for members, we reserve the right to charge a £20 fee for each person booked on a course who does not attend, unless we have been informed about this 10 days in advance.
Supporters and non-members: Training fees from 1 April
We are introducing changes for non-members and for RedbridgeCVS supporters – these are voluntary groups with no connection to Redbridge, and also private and public sector groups. From 1 April we will be charging fees as follows:
|Voluntary and community sector organisation, income under £50,000||£36||£18|
