Theory of Change – three words we have probably all heard, whether from our Boards, funders, colleagues or partners. But just what is a Theory of Change – and how might it be of use to a small organisation in the voluntary sector? This webinar seeks to answer those questions, giving you an overview of what a Theory of Change is, and exploring why the model can help small organisations in developing strategy, fundraising, measuring their impact, or communicating their work internally and externally. This short session is aimed at leaders and managers in smaller organisations, and will offer information on how to make a start on your own Theory of Change, and where to get more support and guidance to do so.
This course is part of a special programme of training and support offered to small voluntary organisations that are set up to provide gender-specific services to women, including those affected by the criminal justice system. The Ministry of Justice have funded places for staff from small, specialist women’s organisations. This is part of a programme of capacity building support to promote sustainable development in order to help to strengthen the women’s specialist offer and contribute to implementation of the Female Offender Strategy.
Clinks aims to strengthen the sector by helping organisations to develop a more varied funding portfolio; support improvements in building the evidence base; engage a diverse group of women who reflect the local population, creating improvements in equality through improved practice; and explore effective service user involvement for women.
The webinar is delivered by Leah Selinger, a trainer with over 17 years of experience as a fundraiser and senior manager in the voluntary sector. She has supported charities to raise income from both public agencies and private donors and organisations. Leah runs her own independent consultancy and is NCVO associate consultant.
If you are a small, specialist women's organisation that was set up to work with women and you would like a place, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
