Community Leadership Academy

Our Community Leadership Academy is a year-long tailored programme that addresses the needs of small and micro charities that are led by and/or serve people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. 

Over 50 community groups from across the UK receive tailored support from Blueprint for All and a range of specialist leadership development partners to ensure community leaders receive support in HR, finance and fundraising, governance, social media, budgeting, and other areas. Academy participants also benefit from being in a network of peers and receive development and capacity building that is tailored to addressing the barriers that BAME community leaders and community groups face.  

The Academy runs for a year and includes a mix of monthly workshops and development sessions, with expert speakers from our partner organisations. Sessions focus on key issues for small charities and social enterprises including HR, engagement, and governance and other priorities identified by Academy participants.  Learning and development is supported by online resources and networking.

This year the Academy will also support participants as they adapt to the impact of Covid 19, which is creating increased and changing demands on voluntary and community groups.
