Are you part of a Charity or Social Enterprise who you think are doing a really great job? Then we want to hear from you - We are looking for nominations for the Third Sector Cafe Awards we are going to be celebrating the sector in Sheffield. Our award categories are Innovation, Collaboration and Governance Its free to enter all you need to do is fill in a survey - to apply click here https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ThirdSectorCafeAwards2013 Over the past 18 months we’ve heard some fantastic examples of the work that is going on in the Third Sector and we want to take some time out to celebrate it. So, we’ve created three great awards to shine a spotlight on some of the fabulous stuff that is going on at the moment. Most Innovative Fundraising : Fundraising has been a key theme over the year and has provoked a lot of interest and charities have had to become skilled in their approach to both capture and inspire those around them to take part. Collaboration We’ve been keen to pursue the idea of collaboration as a way forward, and looking at it as both within the sector and outside the sector. We’d be looking to see evidence of working with outside partners to achieve core aims, whereby both sides have found the experience to be beneficial. Board / Governorship development Having good governorship is key to the success of organisations, over the course of the year we have looked at a range of different areas associated with governorship, from managing your Trust board, managing a change and turbulence and recruiting new trustees. The award would look to recognise good practice, through the recruitment of new trustees, the training and development of a trust board and the governorship practices. To apply either email, post or tweet us the form by the 12th of December!! - We’re looking for examples from the last 18 months - any new projects - New ways of funding existing programs - Creating new or different partnerships - Using volunteers and champions in new ways - Partnering with businesses - Developing new skill sets We want! - Local charities, Sheffield and the surrounding area - Local social enterprises, Sheffield and the surrounding area - Trustees to apply - Chief Execs to apply - Fundraisers to apply - Volunteers to apply

  14. Trustees The Third Sector Cafe is delighted to be holding this event in National Trustee Week which aims to link Sheffield charities looking for trustees, with local people who might like to volunteer as a trustee. Research shows that most of us (97%!) don't know we could be a trustee, while more than half of all trustee posts are vacant because of a shortage of volunteers... in National Trustee Week we'd like to make a difference in Sheffield by helping to connect more potential volunteers with local charities looking for trustees. Who should come? Sheffield charities or not for profit organisations who need new trustees Sheffield based people interested in volunteering as a trustee Why should I come? For charities ... Come along to find a brilliant, new trustee to add value to your board. Supported by big local employers such as Irwin Mitchell's, this event is a good opportunity to meet employees who might make potential new trustees. Plus, two leading HR experts from WM Morrisons Plc will be here to answer your questions on how to develop partnerships with big corporates that offer benefits to you - and to them. Many invest in staff development: can a trustee role with you offer an employee a valuable chance to develop their skills? Sheffield College and Sheffield University have signposted this event to their up and coming academic staff to consider. And Sheffield University Students Union have circulated the event to students and new graduates still in Sheffield who may be looking for volunteering opportunities. Pick up some tips on how to recruit trustees from Sheffield's smaller businesses from successful entrepreneur Jane Stammers in her talk outlining the real business benefits trusteeship has offered her as she's grown her own business. Why should I come? ... for people interested in being a trustee Come along to find out if there's a charity you'd love to get involved with that needs someone with your skills and commitment on their board. "Charities exist to create a better society. The range and scope of their work, and the variety of people they help is amazing" The Charity Commission Sheffield's charities could not do what they do for the city, without their trustees. Being a trustee offers you a chance to help make a positive change for the city while at the same time, develop your own skills and experience. For some people, being a trustee has not only helped them make a difference for a cause they feel passionately about, but has also helped them develop their careers. A range of charities will be at our event ready to talk to you about what they do, and who they are looking for to join their board. Our round table discussions format will provide you with an informal opportunity to find out more about them - and if you find an opportunity that sounds good to you, we'll be able to provide the contact details you need to follow it up. What do I need to do? Please book your ticket at http://thirdsectorcafetrustees-eorg.eventbrite.co.uk/ and join us on November 6th from 4 pm to 6 pm (places are limited). Keep in touch with latest details by joining our Linked In group. Visit our website for more information about the Third Sector Cafe.
