Small charities offered opportunity to brush up on leadership skills

A bursary for a place on a leadership programme is being offered to managers of small charities.

The Connie Guild Bursary Award, for a place on the Work Foundation’s Runge Effective Leadership Programme, is open for applications from paid or voluntary managers from charities with a turnover of £1m or less.

The challenging programme, which will take place this year at Balliol College, Oxford, on 17-21 September, draws together participants from all sectors to work in small groups supported by an experienced facilitator.

In 2006 the bursary was awarded to Lynn Seymour-Price, chief executive of Lincolnshire charity the Blind Society. She said: “I left, not only with a strong sense of purpose, but also with some practical plans for improving my leadership skills.”
