Third Sector Support

Voluntary and community groups make up Lochaber’s vibrant and active third sector, providing a variety of community services, supporting vulnerable groups and providing community facilities to highlight just a few of our activities.

It is a key responsibility of Voluntary Action Lochaber to support these groups, ensuring organisations can fulfill their ambitions.

Support and Guidance is provided through our Community Action Team, who can provide face to face guidance on a range of issues including:

  • Governance
  • Project Development
  • Community Engagement
  • Recruitment and Retention of Volunteers
  • Organisation’s Health Checks
  • Funding
  • Supporting Volunteers

Voluntary Action Lochaber can assist you in fulfilling PVG Scheme requirements for those working with vulnerable individuals or groups.

Our Community Action Team can also work with you to identify training for individuals or organisations such as minute taking training, basic book keeping, governance and team building.  More information is available on our Learning Centre page.

For advice or  for further information please contact us on 01397 706044 or by email.

A huge range of information is also provided by the Highland Community Toolkit managed by our Colleagues at Skye and Lochalsh Council of Voluntary Organisations.
