Your decision to choose NKTS to support your training needs has reached beyond simply securing high quality training.

In 2016, MVA:

  • Met with over 60 small local organisations to provide support on a range of issues; from social enterprise start-up, securing funding to enable continued service delivery and providing Trustee and Governance support.
  • Supported activities aimed at pro-actively preventing Child Sexual Exploitation in Medway.
  • Secured funding to provide support for parents in one of the most deprived areas in Medway
  • Shared best practice, advice, news and support that continues to be digitally accessed by over 4,000 users each quarter.
