New Skills Consulting is continuing to build on its reputation and track record in the not-for-profit sector by becoming an approved BIG Assist supplier.

Changes in the voluntary sector environment mean that more infrastructure organisations than ever are seeking extra support and advice to become more efficient, effective and sustainable. The £6 million BIG Assist programme aims to provide the support the sector needs in these challenging times.

New Skills are experts in helping voluntary organisations to survive, thrive and grow in challenging markets. Through the BIG Assist programme we’ll be able to help infrastructure organisations with strategy development, business planning, financial planning and sustainability, marketing, PR, branding and market research.

Big Assist is a programme for infrastructure organisations in the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, delivered under contract to the Big Lottery Fund by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).

The Programme works to support infrastructure organisations based in England to be more efficient, effective, sustainable and better able to adapt to the current and future operating environment.

Infrastructure organisations can apply for a voucher to exchange through an online market place for support delivered through consultancy, training, coaching and e-learning across a range of topics.
