WCVA Third Sector Awards January 2015 – Calan DVS Nominated for 2 Categories

Over the last 18 months (until December 2014) I have been honoured, and very proud to be part of the Board at Calan DVS – Domestic Abuse Charity based in Neath/Port Talbot.

I am delighted to tell you that Calan DVS has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Communications’ and ‘Good Governance’ categories at this year’s WCVA Welsh Third Sector Awards.

To highlight the wide range of work done in the third sector in Wales, the Awards consist of six different categories. These are the class award for best communications, the environmental award, the health, social care and wellbeing award, the award for good governance, the award for innovative fundraising and the award for the most admired organisation.

Calan DVS have been shortlisted in two of these categories – The class award for best communications, for groups with effective or innovative ways of communicating their message to service users and volunteers, and the award for good governance, which recognises those groups whose trustees ensure their organisation is well run and exemplar.

There are 19 groups and organisations that have been shortlisted from a wide range of different charity areas, including dementia, smoking, clothing recycling, the environment, food distribution, housing, and many more that all work hard to improve the lives of other people in Wales

The awards ceremony will take place at the Marriott hotel in Cardiff on January 29th, and will be hosted by BBC Wales presenter Jason Mohammad.

I am so pleased that I am able to attend the event, and Forever Training will be continuing to support Calan DVS in 2015 by working with Rhian and her team in developing a Client Learning Framework.

Good luck Calan DVS from Forever Training.
