Community development team

Elaine Davies

Community Development Officer

We provide a wide range of development support to groups working in Sheffield.

Our focus is on development and we can work with you on a range of areas, including setting up as a new group, your approaches to strategic planning or developing aspects of your activities and practice. You can also speak to us about measuring your impact – an increasingly important requirement for successfully applying for funding.

Why not have a chat with one of us to explore how we might be able to support your work – we would be very pleased to hear from you.

How we work with you

Working closely with groups in Sheffield we give advice on starting new organisations, strategic planning or developing programmes and policies.

We can help you identify your strengths and areas for improvement, ways to develop your communication, networking and create effective ways of working.

Our support in building impact measurement into your activities can help ensure that your group is in a strong position to successfully apply for funding.

We can work with you on developing your volunteer programme. From one-to-one recruitment support, to creating new roles and to sessions on how to get the best from advertising volunteer roles.

You can access support in good practice. Including in setting-up volunteer policies, managing & supporting volunteers, exploring how to involve volunteers and making sure that their roles are effective in delivering outcomes for everyone - your group, service users and volunteers.
