We are delighted to share that at the beginning of this year we were accepted on to Hertfordshire Community Foundation’s 2018 Build Effectiveness Programme. This is the second year that HCF have run the programme and given that we are right on the county border, and our charitable activities regular venture into Hertfordshire along both the Stort and Lee navigations, we decided to apply. And we were one of just 10 charities that were gleefully accepted!
The programme’s aim is to develop the skills and effectiveness of voluntary organisations across the county. It is being delivered by HCF Training and Development in collaboration with the Cranfield Trust, and is funded by the Garfield Weston Foundation, and Will Hobhouse – the High Sheriff for Hertfordshire for 2017. Watch this video to hear from Will about the programme.
Being part of the Building Effectiveness Programme is giving us the opportunity to evaluate and improve our charity operations, the tools to develop an action plan, and the support to achieve our aspirations. As part of this evaluation we are working hard to better understand the impact we have on our clients and users, and to this end we have put together a survey to help us do just that. We know that people get a lot out of coming out on the river, but this survey will help us better understand exactly what they get out of it and specifically how the experience benefits them.
So if you have utilised our services at any point in the past, please take 10-15 minutes complete this survey. It will greatly help us understand the value we bring to our users and give us the information we need to improve our operation and help more people!
Thank you in advance for your time and input! The CanalAbility Team!
