Charged-for Services

Alongside our extensive range of free services we also offer enhanced bespoke consultancy and project management services to clients who request specific help. We have a good understanding of the challenges facing local charities and community groups and an experienced team that will help drive forward your organisation’s effectiveness.

Though our consultancy and project management services aren’t free we strive to make them affordable especially for small local organisations. Our clients are usually Derbyshire Dales CVS member organisations or public sector partners wishing to access our specialist knowledge about the voluntary sector in the Derbyshire Dales. They choose us because they:

  • Need high quality bespoke guidance, input, ideas etc.
  • Wish to have a ‘fresh pair of eyes’ on a problem and an external opinion which they can trust.
  • Need independent external evaluation of a service
  • Are under time pressure driven by external deadline and have insufficient in-house resource
  • Lack skills/confidence

For example, we can help create, review or refresh an organisation’s vision and strategy, legal structure, governance, operational structure, business objectives, business and project plans and much more. Recently we have provided IT training, created a website, undertaken a community consultation programme and managed a local community grants programme. Please go to the tabs on the right for more information about our specialised IT services and recruitment support.

If you ask us to provide a project management service we will, without obligation, analyse what you ask us to do, define our offer to you and tell you about our charges in writing. It is worth noting that you might be able to get external funding to pay Derbyshire Dales CVS to help you – we can advise you about this too. If you would like to discuss how we might be able to support you please contact Neil Moulden. 01629 812154
