We have three excellent speakers currently lined up they are:

Julian May from the Good Exchange. Julian will be explaining the criteria for the Good Exchange, a fundraising platform which allows you to access multiple funders, donors and fundraisers with a single application, how groups can register and guiding you through the process of how to get the most out of your application. He will also be able to provide further information on funding available through Greenham Trust.

Teri Kearsley from Berkshire Community Foundation (BCF). Teri will be giving an overview of current funding streams available through BCF and  tips on how to improve your chances of success.

Alex Lyons, Groundworks. Tesco Bags of Help is an exciting local community grants scheme where money raised from the sale of carrier bags is used to fund thousands of local projects in communities across the UK. Alex is from Groundworks – the community charity with a green heart – who administers the funding and will be taking you through the funding opportunities available through the scheme.
