Tammy Walker, IVAC Resources Development Officer

Hello!
My name is Tammy Walker and I am Resources Development Officer for IVAC.

I work within the Small Groups Team at IVAC. Therefore most of the training workshops and advice surgeries I organise are particularly appropriate for new and small community/voluntary sector groups in Islington.

Forthcoming events include:

WRITING LEAFLETS & PRESS RELEASES

In Spring 2003 IVAC is planning to run a workshop to help organisations write their own leaflets, newsletters and Press Releases.
A professional journalist with many years working in the print industry and volunteering in the community sector will run the workshop.
The workshop will be free to Islington voluntary/community organisations and will be run at IVAC in Upper Street.

If you are interested in attending such a workshop please complete the Application Form which you can get by clicking here (return by 30/01/03 at the latest) and you will be sent details of the date & agenda of the workshop when it is confirmed. You will not receive the details unless you complete & return the form.

IVAC provides a range of ongoing services to small groups in Islington. These include advice on how to set up and run an organisation through to ideas of where and how to raise funding. These are explained elsewhere on this website on our Small Groups Development and Fundraising pages.

Organisations, especially when they are first being set up, need to be aware of the work and skills involved in running and sustaining an organisation. IVAC wants to encourage workers, management committee members and volunteers to obtain the skills and information they need from the outset.

Part of my work at IVAC is to provide additional expertise through support, training or advice to community/voluntary sector organisations in Islington. My task is to identify other organisations, local professionals or businesses, that can provide additional support or training free to Islington groups. Also to organise “Meet the Funders” events where people can hear presentations by various funding bodies and ask them questions. The idea is that this support/advice/training should complement the one to one advice and support provided by IVAC staff to small groups. It may be that it provides training within a more cultural or issue specific focus, or it may just be an area of expertise which small groups need additional support or advice in.

In order to ensure that the additional support I locate is appropriate I need to know what information, advice or training Islington groups most need. Also what form groups find the most useful to receive this support in, be it through training, one-to-one surgeries or written material. I need to know if groups have any specific language or cultural needs in the delivery. I need to know what level of training or advice groups need.

To do this I would be very grateful if you download and fill in a questionnaire (please click on the link) and return it to me at tammywalker@ivac.org.uk.

Also please hand it on to any other groups to whom it may be relevant but may not have received it. Thank you.
