We want to offer professional development to community leaders free of charge — can you help?

We’re raising funds to run free professional development for community leaders. Staff and volunteers in small grassroots organisations and community groups carried more than their weight this year, supporting the communities hardest hit by COVID-19. These small organisations often don’t get the resources or recognition they deserve. We’re inviting you to donate to fund free professional development for staff/volunteers who might otherwise not have the funds to access it.

Staff /volunteers in these small organisations play critical support roles in their community, often with very little funding, resources, or paid access to professional development. In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis these organisations are recalibrating to continue to support their communities.

What your support could fund

With the funds raised we aim to offer these trainings to community leaders over the next 12 months. In the event that WIRE is not able to provide the volume of training generated through this fundraising campaign we will partner with other organisations who can deliver trainings in these areas.

The costs quoted here are what we have calculated to cover the cost of wages for PD preparation and delivery.
