New development programme seeks community leaders

The Virgin Money Foundation is inviting community leaders from across the North East to apply for a 16-month learning and development programme.

Ten successful applicants to the Leading the Way programme will benefit from a comprehensive range of support aimed at improving their management skills and leadership capabilities. This will include in-person learning sessions every six weeks between March 2022 and June 2023, one-to-one coaching, inspirational talks and access to a programme mentor.

Members of the programme will also receive grants of £8k to support the impact of their organisations and their development as leaders.

Applications for Leading the Way are open until January 18th, subject to certain criteria. To find out more about the programme and the application process, visit the Virgin Money Foundation website.
