BIG Assist offers £6 million support to UK third sector

Last October the NCVO and the Big Lottery Fund launched the BIG Assist support programme to provide infrastructure organisations in the charity, fundraising and voluntary sector with access to financial assistance via a voucher scheme as well as to peer to peer support from the UK third sector community.

Changes in the voluntary sector environment have meant that more infrastructure organisations than ever are seeking extra support and advice to help become more efficient, effective and sustainable so they can continue to support other organisations.

BIG Assist will offer support in the following categories:

  • Strategy, planning and managing change
  • Financial sustainability
  • Innovation, new products and ways of working
  • Marketing and building strategic relationships
  • Supporting and developing people & organisational culture

MyCake is very pleased to have been selected as an approved BIG Assist supplier and this week the first vouchers are being awarded to organisations. We can’t wait to begin helping to strengthen the ‘backbone’ of the voluntary sector.
