Supporting organisational development is at the heart of the work we do.  We believe by strengthening the infrastructure, an organisation benefits from a solid foundation to build upon.  We can support your organisation to identify areas for development, help facilitate the future direction of your organisation and look into diversification strategies to ensure your service offering is always relevant. The support we can provide is tailored to suit your current and future requirements and we will develop this in conjunction with you.  This way we can both be sure that the support meets your requirements, is beneficial and adds value to your organisation.

Under Capacity Building Support we can provide the following:

  • Governance Training – to develop good governance practices for recruitment, retention and oversight

  • Legal set up Charity, Company, CIC, SCIO – application development to full submission and support

  • Facilitate and Run Organisational Development Days using KETSO* or other appropriate tools to ensure all staff are involved

  • Business Planning and producing a 3-5 year business plan

  • 12 month Organisational Development Plans with action planning and specific activities for the year

We have supported a number of organisations, read what they say about our support:

*We use Ketso, a hands-on kit for creative engagement to run our facilitation sessions.  Ketso allows organisations to maximise idea generation and sharing, decision making and action planning.

CEMVO Scotland assisted Make a Difference in becoming a charity. The team was professional in its approach and supported us to define our aims and objectives so that we were clear what we proposed to do as a charity.

We were impressed with the support as the team worked with us to ensure that we were able to meet the charitable purposes as in defined by OSCR and dealing with follow up information required by OSCR in order for Make a Difference to become a charity.

3 Year Development Plan [I Day session]

I would like to thank CEMVO for assisting AWAZFM Charity to formalise its ideas and develop a plan of activity. We found using the KETSO was very helpful in generating ideas and allowing all participants an opportunity to contribute.

The CEMVO training team created an environment where all participants felt comfortable but importantly they felt they were being listened too.

The session was delivered very professionally and we look forward to follow up session/s.

West of Scotland Regional Equality Council – Business Plan [5 years]

West of Scotland Regional Equality Council (WSREC) is very pleased to endorse CEMVO in relation to Business support and planning. Last year CEMVO was engaged by WSREC to provide facilitation to put in place a 5 year business plan. Staff from CEMVO utilised the KETSO Model to take WSREC Board of Directors and Staff through this model which culminated in WSREC gathering the information required and now have a robust 5 year business plan in place.

but importantly they felt they were being listened too.

The session was delivered very professionally and we look forward to follow up session/s.
