VIP offers a range of support to tap into, such as training opportunities, listening and learning groups, resources, as well as tailored packages of support to individual organisations based on their needs. This project is currently funded until March 2016. For more information contact on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 0161 274 3377.
