Weekly 1:1 Support Surgeries

  • Have got questions about your organisation?
  • Want to get started but not sure what legal structure to take?
  • Need support with planning for the future?

Community Waltham Forest 1:1 Support Surgeries are one hour sessions, every other  Wednesday between 2.00pm and 5.00pm. During which you have the opportunity to meet a Development Officer, sign up for Community Waltham Forest membership and talk through some of the issues you are encountering in your daily work and/or as a whole organisation. The dates are as follows: 14 June, 21 June and 12 July.

The 1:1 support is designed to promote the long term sustainability of your organisation, and we encourage board members with strategic responsibility to attend alongside staff members.  When you book we will ask what issues you wish to discuss and request that you send appropriate information prior to attending the meeting.
