Project Management Support
TCC’s main activities are:
1. Information Service:
The information service provides a range of mainly electronic based resources accessed through our website. This includes policy documents, fact sheets and useful information on current funding and other organisational development opportunities.
Through our successful ORCA database we are able to segment information distributed by e-bulletins. This includes funding opportunities, information relevant to themes (such as young people or older people) and by local authority areas.
2. Basic Service:
The basic service provision is a telephone conversation, an e-mail or a short scoping visit to indentify minor advice queries or a more in-depth session that may lead to a commissioned programme of work. This will be a quick and responsive service free of charge and will be a ‘first level’ information, advice and guidance function.
3. Consultancy Service:
The consultancy service provides a greater level of in-depth support. The needs that are identified through the first level process will often lead to an increased range of support and will almost certainly be a longer term relationship. This service will have a cost attributed to it, whether it is a direct payment to TCC, as the training or consultancy deliverer or it may include engaging external consultants with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience that TCC may not have, to ensure the most appropriate level of support. In either case TCC will manage the support agreed with the beneficiary.
4. Project Management:
TCC provides a comprehensive project management service for organisations, churches and projects. The range of services can be as small or as large as the organisation requires.
Examples of the level of support include:
· Business planning
· HR management and supervision of employees and volunteers
· Identifying funding and supporting organisations through the application process Financial planning and monitoring in relation to funders requirements
· Day to day management of the project finances
· Delivery of the organisations/projects outputs and outcomes
