There has been an unprecedented change in the landscape for the charitable and voluntary sector, in particular, the impact that Covid-19 has had on BAME communities and the organisations that serve them. In response BTEG has taken immediate action to develop a range of sustainability and capacity building support for BAME organisations, projects and programmes that have been directly impacted by the virus so that they can ‘think differently and act strategically’.
Funded by The London Community Foundation and the National Lottery Communities Fund, this support will target small BAME-led civil society groups across England working directly to support people at high risk of the virus, have faced a significant increase in demand and/or have limited capacity to focus on internal developments and planning. It will enable them to build their structures, systems, people and skills in order to deliver projects and services in line with the current context and needs.
Groups will have up to 3.5 hours of free expert consultancy support and/or coaching specific to their organisational needs, as well as access to up to 20 organisational and leadership development workshops.
This project will be delivered virtually through Zoom and similar technology.
