PS We’ve added more funding opportunities to our ‘Current Funding Opportunities’ web page since the last edition so please take a look.
Cardiff Third Sector Council News
Sheila is “delighted and honoured to take on the role of Chief Officer of Cardiff Third Sector Council and to join an organisation that makes a positive difference to people’s lives.”
We have two current vacancies: one to sit on the Youth Engagement Workstream and one for the Intra City Public Transport Workstream.
Take a look at the updated web page.
Joining a C3SC network is a great way to meet with other third sector organisations - to get together to share ideas and best practice with others in a similar field.
If you’re a trustee, we’d encourage you to take a look at these two useful guides from WCVA.
