There are many support services available to voluntary and community sector organisations.

This guide is being developed in response to requests for a directory of those services.

Our aim in putting this menu together is to offer a choice. Some of the organisations providing services will be funded to give free advice and support, others will charge for their services .

In providing this guide, North Bank Forum is not endorsing any particular service or organisation, though if you would like to talk about which service might be the most suitable for you, you are welcome to contact us to discuss your requirements.

To ensure these pages remain up to date, your input is essential.

If you are in contact with any organisations that offer services, know that one of the services we refer to no longer operates, or have a comment to make about services that you have received, please get in touch and let us know!

Please contact Ali Middle on 01482 499031 or e-mail
