Description

Interested in hearing about funding opportunities for your group?

Want to hear about the latest developments?

Then this Network event is for you!

SCVO's latest 'Funding Network' event will be held at the Yemeni Community Association in Sandwell, Greets Green Access Centre, Tildasley Street, West Bromwich, West Midlands, B70 9SJ on Tuesday, 18th July 2017 between 10am and 12 noon.

We know that access to funding support is at the forefront of many VCS organisations' needs so we’re keen to explore ways in which groups can access such support and information through peer-to-peer learning and networking, together with targeted support information from SCVO and key funders.

'Funding Network' events are a great place for organisations to meet and share ideas and good practice, focus on resources (such as SCVO’s ‘Funding Portal’), how to find funders, how to evidence need, how to develop trading / social enterprise ideas and other relevant information. There's also the opportunity to hear from external guests, who make a short presentation about their organisation's role in the broader spectrum of funding opportunities.

The Outline Agenda for this meeting is: (please note - this may be subject to change)

Guest Speaker Details:

With over a decade’s experience of providing grant fundraising for organisations such as sports clubs, charities, community groups, schools and churches, as well as grant giving services and application assessments, the consultancy holds a wealth of experience that is passed to our clients through services and workshops.

Get Grants is able to provide a rare insight into the grant giving sector and how decisions are made having carried out grant assessment roles on eight different grant programmes in the past two years. This insight is essential in knowing how to ‘catch the eye’ of a grant making charity and how to avoid the common mistakes made by applicants.

Based in the West Midlands the consultancy is able to work with any organisation irrelevant of your location or size.
