2013 Annual Meet the Funder Event

2013 Annual Meet the Funder Event
Wednesday 27th November - 09.00-14.45
The Public – West Bromwich.

Following on from last year’s hugely successful Meet the Funder Event, SCVO & Sandwell Council External Funding Team are making this year’s event even bigger and better with more Local & National Funders, more workshops, a market place and a Key Speaker.
As part of our 4th annual event, we will be having presentations by the Heritage Lottery Fund detailing what being a ‘priority development area’ means, Children in Need will be talking about their move to become an Outcomes Focused Funder and the Big Lottery Fund will be detailing all of their new programmes and how new ways of working at a local level will benefit groups.

Other funders, such as Arts Council England, Lloyds TSB Foundation, and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation will be talking through their programmes, detailing their current priorities. A more detailed schedule for the day will be sent out closer to the event. Staff will be on hand throughout the day for any enquiries you may have around funding whilst representatives from other CVS’s will also be on hand for those groups from outside of Sandwell.
