Information for Organistations

Sharon Blyth, Sparks Voluntary Sector Advisor for Mendip is now regularly in Frome to offer support for organisations.  Sharon has lived in the Mendip area for the last 15 years, working in local communities for both statutory organisations and local charities and community groups.  She has helped groups to start up, establish themselves and gain funding towards anything from a weekly table tennis club to befriending schemes, play parks and community radio.  In partnership with agencies including schools, job centres, the NHS and a whole range of smaller organisations such as dance collectives and forest schools, she has been involved in seeing new opportunities created and communities change for the better.

Her role in Frome is primarily to support organisations in recruiting, managing and retaining volunteers supporting with everything from logging onto Volunteer Frome to putting policies and procedures in place.
