The third sector depends on having paid staff and volunteers with the knowledge and information needed to manage their organisation and serve their community. This creates a need to keep informed and up to date with current developments and possess a working knowledge of a wide range of topics. Enabling and supporting people to enhance their knowledge and expertise empowers them to use their skills and talents to develop new community groups and strengthen existing ones.

Volunteering in the pandemic

Information and learning has never been more important in a world that is changing so fast. Our aim as Third Sector Support Wales is to offer a range of free bilingual, accessible, high-quality resources on topics that are of value and relevance to the sector, which you can utilise whenever needed.

Our resources are compiled by experts who are committed to the values of the third sector in Wales. If you have specific access requirements, please contact us by emailing training@wcva.cymru and we will work with you to make sure our resources are as accessible as possible.

You can filter our resources by pillar (main topic), sort alphabetically or when they were added to the website. If you are looking for something particular, then use the general search facility at the top of the page to search by key words and this will help you find the resources you need.
