BIG Assist is delivered by NCVO under contract to the BLF to support voluntary sector infrastructure organisations that support other voluntary and community organisations.
BIG Assist works to help infrastructure organisations be more effective, sustainable and better able to adapt and change.
Supporting and engaging equalities organisations is a priority for BIG Assist, set by the BLF, who recognise equalities infrastructure organisations are significantly ‘at risk’.
BIG Assist provides support through: –
- voucher awards of up to £15,000 in support for organisational development; and organisations can reapply for support. If you are interested in the voucher awards do apply soon and before the end of October when awards may need to close.
- Access to an on line market place of approved suppliers rated and commented on by BIG Assist customers.
- Peer to Peer support including paid for visits to learn from others – the visiting organisations receives £250 and the host organisation £400.
- Access to a wide range of free on line resources plus face to face and on line events.
BIG Assist is also running a series of regional events and the BIG Assist events page will be kept updated with information about them.
