Event description

Description

This training session / workshop will consist of 2 parts. For the first hour, Pam Bacon, Regional Officer, Children and Need, South and West Region will be providing information about grant funding available through Children in Need. (Historically, Children in Need have not received many applications from within RBWM or awarded many grants and would therefore like to raise their profile across the area.) During the second hour, Ray Emmans, WAM Get Involved, will be providing general tips and advice on writing good funding bids.

Attendees can come for either hour or both, but booking is essential either way. There will also be an opportunity for groups to have a 15min one-to-one follow up appointment with Children in Need after the first hour of the workshop. These must be booked in advance, which can be done by emailing Colin Gault at info@wamgetinvolved .org.uk in the first instance.

Who should attend?
The session is open to all voluntary and community groups but will be particularly relevant to those working with or looking to work with children and young people aged 18 years and under in the UK who are experiencing disadvantage through:
  • Illness, distress, abuse or neglect;
  • Any kind of disability (includes Autism, ADHD, Asperger’s)
  • Behavioural or psychological difficulties (this can include low level mental health that don’t reach the threshold for CAMHS)
  • Living in poverty or situations of deprivation

For further details about the eligibility criteria for funding through Children in Need or general information about the session itself, email info@wamgetinvolved.org.uk

(Parking is available at car parks nearby, e.g. Hines Meadow, Crown Lane, Maidenhead, SL6 8QZ or Nicholsons Centre, Nicholsons Walk, Maidenhead, SL6 1LB. Please note charges apply.)
