Our Funding Fair on 16 June is promising a great turnout,we’re almost full with over 40 spaces taken, so don’t forget to book your place if you still wish to attend. More information here.

You will hear from local and national funders, including the Big Lottery.

But what do funders expect to see from you?

Funders will expect you to have a good grasp of you income and expenditure, so that you can report back to them on how charitable monies have been used. This will also help you to easily see whether you are under or over-spending before it’s too late!
