Event description

Description

Does your voluntary or community group need funding for a specific project?

The National Lottery Community Funding officer for Reading will be offering 1:1 sessions to Reading voluntary and community groups on Thursday 27 June 2019 at the RVA offices, 3rd Floor, Central Library.

At your 1:1 you will have the have the opportunity to canvas your idea for funding, whether it is for an existing service or an idea about a new service or activity. Please note that the Big Lottery Funding Officer cannot help you fill in the application form, but will give you general guidance and tips.

Top Tips! Have a think about the following ahead of your appointment:

1. Are you an existing group and do you have a constitution? Do you have at least three unconnected trustees on your Committee or Board?

2. What is the need for your service? Have you looked at similar services in Reading? Is there an overlap, are you working in partnership or are you providing something new? Is there a demand locally for this service? How do you know this?

3. What is the benefit to the people who will receive your service? Try to think of this in terms of outcomes, such as reduced loneliness or increased mental well-being.

4. How will your activities help achieve this outcome? What specifically are you wanting to provide, where will this take place and how often? How willl you know if your project has been successful?

5. How much funding are you looking for? Have you put together a budget to go with your activities for this project?

6. If you are working with children or vulnerable adults, have you thought about keeping them safe? Do you have a safeguarding procedure?

Please come prepared with your answers to the above, this will help you to get the most from your 1:1 session. If you need help with developing any procedures, such as Safeguarding, Finances, or Volunteer agreements, you can contact herjeet.randhawa@rva.org.uk for assistance.
