Organisational support

CTSI can help you achieve your goals.

CTSI offers a wide range of support to our member organisations.

  • Start-up – Organisational Development staff can give advice on the way forward: choosing the right legal structure, governing documents, the makeup of your committee, types of membership structure, recruitment of members and committee members, how to market your group, whether charitable status is appropriate, business planning and template policies and procedures.
  • Registered Charities – CTSI can support you through the application process of becoming a charity or SCIO and complying with charity law.
  • Good Governance – compliance with law & regulation, ensuring your organisation is well run and efficient, risk management and being open & transparent.
  • Training – Our team can offer a wide range of training opportunities including committee skills, fundraising and bespoke packages to suit your organisation.
  •  Health Checks – Getting into the habit of regularly reviewing the health of your organisation will help you to spot problem areas quickly, identify strengths and weaknesses, and encourage you to develop, implement and embed a continuous review process. CTSI’s  Health Check will support your organisation get into good shape and be more effective. The health check (link health check) is intended to be used as a self-assessment tool, but our Organisational Development Officer can provide assistance if there are any issues that need to be addressed as a result.

  • If people want to learn something new, we enable that to happen by giving them the training and skills – and along the way they get good company and a sense of achievement from what they have made

  • I get a lot of satisfaction as an RSVP volunteer and I would recommend getting involved. Volunteering Matters to me because of the impact it can have on our community and making a difference to peoples lives. It gives me the opportunity to keep active and to contribute to my community in retirement.
    Bob Kerr Handyperson, Volunteering Matters
  • Deciding to befriend was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have ever made - we both get so much out of it. I look forward to spending time with her every week and we are always commenting on how much we have in common! Loneliness is something that can affect anyone at any time, and it is projects like this that are so important in helping to stop it. I would recommend befriending to anyone – even if they are feeling apprehensive like I was – as the benefits to the person you are matched with and yourself are endless
    Katie Wardlaw Befriender, Volunteering Matters
  • It has been a good transition from working full time to volunteering. I had not done anything like this since my children were young as I worked full time for a long time but now I feel I can give something back to the community – and I am really enjoying this role. It is a great fit
