Regeneration North Cornwall launch programme of free events designed to help develop community projects

Objective One project Regeneration North Cornwall is pleased to announce the launch of the Community Enterprise Development Programme which will run from September to December 2003. The Programme is a series of free one day information sessions for representatives of community groups, parish councils, voluntary organisations, project applicants and others within North Cornwall. The sessions are designed to provide access to new skills, raise awareness, inspire, provide practical help and support and introduce participants to new networks and contacts.

The programme is suitable for new community groups and projects that are just forming as well as those who are already up and running and need new skills to make the most of opportunities arising. Key features of the Community Enterprise Development Programme include the opportunity for participants to gain skills, knowledge and confidence in order to:

• Develop your organisation or partnership

• Aid project development

• Make successful grant applications

• Administer and manage projects effectively

Fourteen free one day sessions are being offered within North Cornwall.

Regeneration North Cornwall's Programme Manager Check McEwen summarised the one day information sessions as "extremely valuable". She went on to say: "Our programme deliverers are thoroughly experienced in this type of activity and will offer an informative and interesting day in a friendly, informal atmosphere. The programme provides a unique opportunity for community representatives of North Cornwall to access highly regarded information and expertise free of charge."

Initial feedback on the Community Enterprise Development Programme has been very positive. Mr Paul Holmes, Vice-Chair of Wadebridge Town Forum explained how the programme will directly help the members of Wadebridge Town Forum and in turn benefit the wider community. He stated: "If we are serious about developing our Town plan, securing funding and making projects happen for the benefit of our community, we will need a committee with a variety of skills and knowledge. There are no short cuts in achieving this and the comprehensive Community Enterprise Development Programme provides an excellent opportunity for our members to gain new skills and understand the key elements for turning a project dream into a reality."

Places on each session of the Community Enterprise Development are limited and need to be booked in advance.

For more information, to request our Community Enterprise Development Programme leaflet or simply book a place on any session please contact Nikki or Sarah at Regeneration North Cornwall on 01208 77860 or email
