One-to-One Surgeries

The ongoing COVID19 situation with different and increased demands on organisations, along with the need to plan longer term mean that organisations are facing challenges as never before.  Some organisations will need to review their position and make changes.  GCVS is working with partners to make sure that support is in place for organisations. For this we offer one to one 45 minute bookable appointments via telephone or Zoom.

Governance Surgeries

Board members play a key role in voluntary sector organisations and groups; providing leadership and direction, ensuring compliance and generally being the advocates for their organisation or group.  Sometimes they need a little support, eg with understanding what is involved in the board member role or needing to review the organisation’s governing documents and policies.  A surgery appointment with our governance expert can point you in the right direction.

HR Surgeries – Including Restructure & Redundancy

With the challenges faced by Voluntary Sector organisations, you may need to take action if you employ staff and your funding is at risk or if you are restructuring to meet changing needs.  It is important that you know the regulations that relate to notice, consultation periods and redundancy. Have you taken this into account in your planning?  Our HR Service can offer an appointment to look at what you need to do.  Alternatively if your organisation is undertaking a review, our HR Service can offer support with staff handbook and contract reviews.  HR appointments are appropriate for trustees / board members / senior manager only.   

Crisis Management/Review Surgeries

These appointments offer organisations an opportunity to ascertain their current position and will include financial review, organisational restructure and making decisions around next steps for your organisation.
