Training & Events


Here at Halton & St Helens VCA we aim to offer value for money, high quality training and support specifically aimed at meeting the needs of the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector. Our aim is to work with people to help develop their skills, knowledge and experience that not only supports the development of the individuals but ultimately the organisation.

Investing in training for your staff and volunteers can be a great opportunity to raise morale and to help create greater understanding between teams and team members. Training and development is vital and can help your organisation to develop, grow and become more resilient.

Many organisations find they benefit more from having training customised to their specific needs rather than accessing more generic courses. Our experienced and fully qualified staff work with you to help design and deliver flexible training solutions for your staff and volunteers. We do not specify any minimum or maximum number of participants and our prices are fully inclusive of learning materials and all participants receive an attendance certificate.

Prices start from £350 for a half day session and £650 for a full day and VAT is not applicable. Don’t forget you get a massive 10% saving too if you are registered members of Halton & St Helens VCA!
