Last chance for a Capacity Grant

Funding is available of up to £1,500 for Capacity Building. This can be used for:

  • Training for staff and volunteers in 3rd sector organisations on mainstream routes to employment and training: (For example, this might include PTTLs/IAG)
  • Actions to support the development of delivery and accreditation arrangements in-house: (this could include PQASSO/ISO accreditation);
  • Running events and/or workshops to build capacity of small 3rd sector organisations to apply for grants and associated costs.

Please note that proof of payment for the course has to have been received by TCHC by no later than 31st July 2015 .

  1. Have a turnover of less than £300,000 per annum

  3. Be a social enterprise or not-for-profit organisation
