Services

"So you want to"

We are beginning a new series of booklets which will contain detailed instructions and ideas on how to organise a variety of tasks within your Talking Newspaper and the first one is:  "So you want to .... Hold a Local Conference". 

Why a Local Conference?  A Local Conference is totally different to the National Conference in that it concentrates on day to day issues that are specifically relevant to the TNs attending.  Local Conferences give opportunities to local TN volunteers to get help and advice on problems which they need to address.  TN volunteers also want to be able to network and have a better understanding of other TNs in their area.  If you are thinking about holding a Local Conference then please go to the Members Area  > Members Documents where you will find help and advice in a booklet.  For any initial enquiries please contact office@tnf.org.uk or ring:  01793 485 554


Collecting Equipment

 Collecting tins and tabards If you wish to take part in a supermarket or street collection and don’t have the equipment we can help you. Being a member of TNF entitles you to borrow from our small range.  We have collecting boxes and buckets, ring seal labels, flag day stickers and tabards.  To borrow them, just call us on 01793 485 554 or email: office@tnf.org.uk and they will be delivered free of charge to your TN.

Display Equipment

  If you’re thinking of staging a display at a local event, we can help you.  We have a range of equipment which TNF members can borrow.  We have 3ft display boards with hinged wing panels as shown here.  We can deliver them free of charge at a time to suit you.  We will even courier the display board to you and collect it from you.  Just call us on 01793 485 554 or email: office@tnf.org.uk to place your request.

Leaflets

 Leaflets

We have leaflets, posters and demonstration CDs that you can use.  All of these can be delivered free of charge at a time to suit you.  Just call us on 01793 485 554 or email: office@tnf.org.uk to let us know what you would like.

You can download the demonstration CD and add your own details at the end of the recording to customize it for your own use on local exhibitions and displays.  Just click here to login into the Members Area where you will find it under Members Documents

Volunteers

We couldn’t run Talking Newspapers without our volunteers. They give so much time, energy and expertise - so why not show your appreciation by presenting your volunteers with a long service award? TNF members can access a template to be completed, and signed by your Chairman, ready for the presentation. Just click here to login to the Members Area and download a certificate.  

Talking Newspaper Celebrations

If you're thinking of celebrating a special birthday for your Talking Newspaper, why not have a certificate to mark the occasion? Just contact us on 01793 484 554 or email: office@tnf.org.uk. We just need a few details:

  • the name of your TN
  • how many years you're celebrating
  • the date you want on the certificate (and when you want it)
  • your full name, address and telephone number for delivery purposes

and we'll do the rest so that it's with you in plenty of time for your special day.

An introduction to Trustee and Volunteer Inductions

You can view these documents as guidelines or notes when thinking about issuing new Trustees or Volunteers with an Induction Pack.  Just click on the link to login and download them from the Members Documents pageThere's a Training document on the website and it's a good idea to encourage your volunteers to read chapters that will be relevant to their role. Training - be professional
