About this event

Come along and meet other members to discuss challenges and triumphs.

Each meeting includes a one hour workshop on a theme highlighted by members and a discussion that links to our wider influencing agenda.

We’ll then reprise our popular Link-up Lunch format – an open chat to help you get to know members near you. Stay if you can, or just drop in if you’re unable to come to the main meeting.


11.00 Welcome and introductions

11.10 One Hour Workshop: What makes a successful funding bid?

Using real examples, we’ll unpick what appeals to funders. We’ll look at content, layout, language and evidence.

12.10 Discussion: ‘Keep it Local’ campaign: How are councils partnering with and commissioning
Community organisations in your area?

Includes resources to help you influence your council to work more closely with you.

12.30 Link-up Lunch:  Need some help? Have something to share? Chat informally with other members.

1.00pm Event close (Zoom link left open for 30mins to facilitate extended conversation if needed)

This event is open to those with the Essentials, Membership Plus or Partner package.

As your membership covers your whole organisation, if you feel the content is more suited to a colleague we’d love to meet them!
