My organisation encourages charitable activities

YCH' commitment to employee development is reflected in the amount of budget allocated to a variety of learning and development activities. Over £280,000 is allocated to professional training, ad hoc training, management development and conferences. Some 707 days were invested in training for the last financial year ranging from ad hoc one day events to degree and master level studies. YCH is in the middle of a 3 year leadership and management training programme which on completion will have seen 48 senior officers and managers attend. The programme modules support the manager's competency framework which aims to align the performance of managers across the company. HR take responsibility for arranging and promoting learning events on a corporate level (i.e. Health and Safety, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion). All training events are evaluated and reported to HR Committee on an annual basis. YCH try to employ a variety of learning methods to be able to engage as many people as possible. The most popular has been the delivery of EDI training by a theatre company.

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

In June this year YCH took part in a #ChallengeYCH scheme. In support of the charity, Mencap, a 5 day challenge of soil clearing, wall mending, tree cutting, fence erecting and flagstone laying commenced to create a new area for the children and adults who use the centre. Over 30 staff were involved at some stage of the project often working way beyond their contracted hours to ensure the challenge was successfully completed. Mencap have congratulated YCH on having improved the lives of those who attend the centre. The YCH Sports Bursary Scheme has been launched this year to provide funding support for people within our communities who may be excluded from sporting activities for reasons of cost. Potential beneficiaries may include individuals who are wishing to engage in a sporting activity for the first time, or those who are already established within their sport but are hoping to progress to a higher level. The objective of the Bursary Scheme is to provide support to those who are prevented from achieving these objectives, due to their personal financial limitations. Most recently a member of staff has asked members of YCH to support the charity, Young Epilepsy. The staff member has a personal connection to the charity and his request has been fully embraced by the CEO who is personally promoting the work of the charity and selling the charities goods to raise funds. The CEO has selected this this charity for his next marathon.
