Cascading Leadership from The King’s Fund
Next course starts March 2020.
Leadership provides an invaluable free opportunity for leaders working
in health and wellbeing organisations in the voluntary and community sector in
the UK to develop their leadership skills and receive practical support.
It is built on a peer-to-peer model where an experienced VCS leader (a consultant) supports another VCS leader who is seeking support (a partner). Consultants and partners are matched together in pairs. They meet at least five times over a period of nine months where the partner has an opportunity to work through organisational issues and receive support. The consultant also benefits from being stretched to develop their own leadership and skills, while being supported and supervised by senior staff at The King’s Fund. There is no charge for the programme, which is valued at £5,800 for each pair.
Up to £2500 for projects that showcase patient and citizen involvement that improves healthcare
Has your voluntary, community or social enterprise
group done some amazing patient, service user or carer involvement work that
has improved healthcare services?
If so, we want you to tell us about it. In fact, we
want to support you to tell everyone about it!
NHS England and NHS Improvement will be awarding
grants of up to £2500 to a number of projects that showcase good practice
around patient and citizen involvement in healthcare. Applicants will need to
provide details of the successful involvement project they have completed,
along with details of how they plan to use the grant to share and showcase
their work in a creative way.
The grants can only be awarded to a voluntary, community or social enterprise organisation. Please ensure you read the 2019 guidelines for community grant applicants pack before you apply, to check that your organisation and project is eligible.

Plus inclusion, update on new health & wellbeing initiatives, new TSL Kirklees website & membership package, & new Thriving Kirklees funding.
We’ve decided to keep August’s Members’ Meeting in central Huddersfield so that we can discuss the proposed Kirklees Blueprint for the town centre, and even pop out to look at some of the earmarked sites if necessary. It would be great to be able to pull together some third sector views on the changes.
We’ll also be:
- hearing about inclusion
- getting an update on some of the health and wellbeing initiatives that we heard about at the April meeting
- launching the new TSL Kirklees website & package of member benefits
- finding out about new Thriving Kirklees funding
and of course, we’ll be celebrating Yorkshire Day.
About The Meetings
Our TSL Kirklees Members’ Meetings are held bi-monthly and are an opportunity for our member organisations to get together, share knowledge and experience, and hear from key third sector partners, experts and commissioners about their initiatives and priorities. The meetings are made up of a mixture of speakers, workshops and discussions, networking, and opportunities to promote our services and activities and get help and support from peers. We try our best to make sure it’s two hours well spent and worth the time out of your organisation or community business.
Non-members charities, community and voluntary group and social enterprises are welcome to come along as guests before deciding whether they’d like to join. Our aim is to help develop, support and grow a healthy, active and collaborative third sector in Kirklees. Our membership fees therefore are designed to cover the costs of our meetings and member-only activities and allow as many people as possible to take part.
