Save money on training

Free and subsidised training is sometimes available. A training calendar of events is available on the Community Action Bradford & District website which advertises courses and includes details of low-cost in-house tailored training for management committees. Course fees start from £25 for a half-day session for smaller voluntary and community groups so it's worth planning ahead and budgeting for training in your funding plan.

Email is a good way of finding about about free training. Send your details to training@cabad.org.uk to be added to the training email list, or email contact@cnet.org.uk to get the CNet weekly news ebulletin.
