Our next Voluntary and Community Forum takes place on 16th March in Sleaford starting at 12.00 noon.
The Forum is our regular networking and information event for voluntary and community organisations. It features speakers, news and funding updates. There is also the opportunity for you to share information about your own organisation’s services, projects and promote local events.
The theme this time is funding. There will be information and tips on raising funds and applying for grants, and a chance to share experiences with other community organisations. Hear directly from funders themselves about what they expect from applications and common pitfalls to avoid.
In partnership with Lincolnshire County Council, the Forum will be followed by ‘Join the Dots’ – a funding and communities session from 3pm – 6pm, which will provide an opportunity for you to talk to funders and other local organisations in more detail about your community’s needs.
Join the Dots is for anyone with an interest in their community to come and talk about the work you are doing, the things you are proud of in your area and how we can all develop ways to work together in the future.
Funders will be part of these conversations too, and they are keen to hear about local partnerships, and how people are working with others in their communities.
Both events are free to attend, but as the Forum includes a networking lunch places do need to be pre-booked for catering purposes. Please do advise us of any specific dietary requirements when registering, or phone us on 01529 308450.
