Impact Training

Covid and lockdown are creating an unusual time where charities are often needing to re-think how they work quickly and prove the difference they are making to funders. These courses can help!

  • 7 Impact Sessions run by the Impact Officer. These are great for beginners or those wanting to brush up on everything they need to improve what they do and be funder ready. 
  • Micro training done during the networks or forum can be repeated for groups, or check out the slides at the bottom of the Impact Resources page. 
  • We're also booking training from other providers. This is a great opportunity for Bexley borough groups to access training for FREE!

7 Impact Sessions

These sessions are suitable for:

  • Staff and volunteers
  • Project workers
  • Person responsible for fundraising
  • Trustees
  • Beneficiaries that you want to involve in your work

Apart from the trustee lunchtime sessions, these sessions will last at most 1 hour they are perfect for those who are new to the ideas or who want a refresher. You can follow up the training with a 1-2-1 session if you have questions about implementing what you have learnt. The courses build on one another, although you can dip in and out.

We ran the sessions in autumn 2020 and received excellent feedback. We started repeating them in February 2021. If you have missed them please get in touch to find out when they are next running. Check out the sessions here.

Additional Training 

In addition to the course above, there are stand alone sessions which are being created to respond to the needs of groups. Please request these. Slides of the shortened versions are available on the Impact Resources page. 

Online Whiteboards for Impact

Whiteboards can be a useful tool when working remotely and wanting to discuss ideas or order thoughts. This brief session has done the leg work of looking into different programmes and then provides the opportunity to try one of them using impact work as an example of how it can be used. You can stay just for the theory (about 30 minutes) or for the practical part too which will probably bring the session up to just under an hour, depending on questions participants have. An introduction to different whiteboards you can use in remote working, followed by some examples of practically using a whiteboard.

If you are interested in Impact this is helpful OR if you are interested in remote working this is helpful. If you are interested in both, all the better!
