VSF services

Designed specifically for organisations and groups in the voluntary and community sector, these are affordable and beneficial services that would not normally be accessible to groups in Cornwall.

Recruitment advertising

The recruitment market is extremely competitive, especially in the voluntary and community sector. The Cornwall VSF website is one of the places those seeking employment head to. We can advertise your job and promote it through our social networks and daily news bulletin. Plus, if you don’t manage to fill your position, we will re-advertise it for you for free.

Business review

Do you struggle to give a concise overview of your organisation when needed?

Do you need help presenting your organisation to funders?

Our experienced team will turn the information you provide into a clear, concise and visual business review. It will be 3-4 pages long (we have found these to be the most effective) and will be divided into sections which will include your organisations aims, objectives, achievements and future plans. Most importantly, it will be a fantastic tool for your organisation to use again and again when joining consortiums, promoting your work or applying for funding.

Rapid evaluation

Evaluating your organisation’s project or service will help you to gain insight into what you do, enabling you to reflection on the difference you are making for users and through learning from the results, help you to make better decisions about the future. We have developed the Rapid Evaluation Service for VCSE organisations who are interested in having a brief yet professional evaluation of their project or service at the fraction of the time and cost which is often required for a lengthy full scale evaluation. Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum will use the information your organisation has available as well as speaking to funders, stakeholders, staff, volunteers and your project or service users, ensuring that your evaluation is insightful and useful.

Governance check

Are you aware that it is the duty of all trustees to run their organisation to ensure its funds are used properly, fairly and economically? Also trustees need to ensure that they are protected from allegations of poor management and be confident that they are doing all they can to further the objectives of the organisation.

Getting governance right is essential for an efficient, effective and healthy community or voluntary group. Cornwall VSF has developed its Governance Review to help your management committee, trustees and/or directors to ensure they are compliant with good practice, new developments and are functioning in the best way possible.

The Governance Review will enable you to meet with an experienced expert who will then provide a written report specific to your organisation and covering aspects of building the governance team, agreeing aims, reviewing legal structure, roles and responsibilities, relationships between committee and staff, effective meetings, opportunities for collaboration, monitoring and evaluation, and use of funding strategy.
