Having supported Derbyshire Districts Citizens Advice Bureau by providing support in relation to project design, development and bid review, we are extremely pleased to learn that they have been awarded a grant of £342,000 from the Big Lottery Fund – Advice Services Transition Fund. The funding is intended to build capacity and improve advice service outcomes throughout the Amber Valley, Derbyshire Dales, Erewash and High Peak Districts and will make a huge difference to the significant numbers of people living in those areas who need advice and information in order to deal with the effects of welfare reforms.
Due to the demand for our popular one day workshop, Finding Funding, we have added a further presentation to the schedule. We are now taking bookings for Tuesday 25th June, the venue will once again be Kings Cross, London. The workshop is led by an experienced Fundraising Consultant and offers an introduction to the whole business of fundraising – planning, building a budget, identifying funders and making the application. Numbers taking part are limited to allow participants the opportunity to discuss their own situations. Recent participants said of the workshop,
Charity Fundraising Ltd is delighted to be working with St Paul’s Cathedral to raise funds for their heritage fundraising priorities and educational activities. St Paul’s Cathedral needs no introduction but needless to say we are really excited about providing fundraising consultancy support towards this remarkable institution.
