Voluntary Sector Organisations ‘Access the Expert’
Voluntary Sector Organisations ‘Access the Expert’

27th Nov 2012

New Skills has been selected as an approved provider for a new service to support charitable and not-for-profit organisations in South Tees. ‘Access the Expert’ offers funding for consultancy support to help organisations with strategy development, business planning, marketing and tenders.

New Skills was recruited to the service thanks to our track record of helping voluntary organisations to survive, thrive and grow in challenging markets. In recent years we’ve helped a wide range of organisations to develop new strategies, secure new income streams and raise their profiles. Our extensive experience of the sector has seen us working with organisations in health, enterprise and offender services, as well as arts, culture and sport.

Access the Expert has been developed in a partnership between some of the North East’s key voluntary sector support organisations, including VONNE, MVDA and FINE. Funding for the support is provided via Big Fund, which is delivered on behalf of the Office for Civil Society, Cabinet Office. To find out more about the service visit
