Event description

Description

If you have a strong passion for something to happen in your community, you will want to attend this free workshop which will look at good funding ideas, selling your idea to others, how to research your need to prove your case, and provides lots of useful advice on writing bids. Aimed at those who already have attended the ‘Setting Up A Charity’ workshop, you will come with a clear project idea and project budget in hand. During the 2.5 hours, you will re-draft your project plan and turn it into a draft funding application (£10,000 to £25,000). This is very practical and interactive in style. For enquiries grassroots@cvalive.org.uk


How bookings are managed: We expect workshops to be very popular.

Up to 16 people working with Croydon people can attend for free.

Up to 10 people helping people outside of Croydon (other London boroughs / national organisations / international groups) can attend for a £25 fee. Refunds are given up to 7 days before the event.

Bookings will be taken and assessed as received.

Priority will be given to: Croydon based individuals / groups who have attended capacity building workshops / received in-depth support during the last six months. We run a waiting list, please email grassroots@cvalive.org.uk to be added to this if this event is full. One week before each workshop date, we will offer free workshop spaces to the waiting list.

Who is running the workshops: As an experienced coach and fundraising trainer, Claudia Demuth helps not for profits to set up, effectively deliver, and carefully reflect on income generation / business planning approaches. During the last 20 years Claudia has supported a wide range of charities, social enterprises and sub-regional partnerships to raise funds from sources such as the Big Lottery, Dept of Health or Europe, as well as acting as a critical eye for those wanting to set up great new projects. Currently an associate for the Law Centres Network, the School for Social Entrepreneurs, Croydon Voluntary Action, London Community Foundation and Homeless Link; she uses expert coaching and action learning techniques to encourage people to think outside of the box.

Clients really value Claudia’s ability to quickly identify organisational stumbling blocks and ask hard questions which help challenge long-held assumptions, whilst bringing humour and patience to this sometimes painful process! With 20 years’ experience in funding panels, commissioning, business planning and project management, she prefers to keep things simple and enjoys helping people to discover ‘light-bulb’ moments.
