The improved Knowledge Hub gives voluntary organisations in Wales easy access to a range of free online resources, networking and learning.
If you work or volunteer for a charity, community group or voluntary organisation of any kind in Wales then the Knowledge Hub is here to help.
Registering for free on the Knowledge Hub gives you the opportunity to upskill yourself, learn, and access high quality information on key areas such as running your organisation, volunteering, funding and influencing.
The platform has undergone several changes over the past year with better, more tailored access to content that’s right for you and a suite of new online courses and resources, all completely free to use.
A tailored experience
The Knowledge Hub contains a wide range of E-learning courses, guidance and peer-to-peer discussions, but how do you find the information that’s relevant to you?
As well as new landing pages to help you browse, the Knowledge Hub now allows you to select areas of interest that suit your needs (using categories such as communications, HR, resilience, or safeguarding). Once you’ve registered or updated your profile, each time you visit the site you’ll be shown a unique view, with content presented by what’s most important to you.
Learn and share with others in the sector
The Your Network area of the Knowledge Hub is where voluntary organisations in Wales come together to connect with others, share good practice and support each other.
The Hub’s online networks offer a collaborative space to connect with peers in the sector, share good practice, ask questions, and talk about successes and challenges.
New courses and guidance
The Knowledge Hub has expanded its selection of distance learning courses and resources.
New online training courses include:
- Creating a budget from scratch
- Introduction to voluntary sector legal structures and charitable status
And, coming soon:
- Planning & writing a successful funding bid
- Developing a fundraising strategy
Newly added resources to the Hub include:
- Marketing and communications planning, and branding information sheets
- Guidance on What Volunteer Centres do in Wales
There are also a variety of new resources on campaigning and influencing.
