When: 10:30 - 12noon, Wednesday 06 October 2021 Where: Zoom Call, Anywhere with an internet connection, Online, KY6 2AL This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.
This is a unique opportunity to come together as third sector organisations and provide feedback, ideas and challenges to one of the biggest funders in the country. FVA has teamed up with the National Lottery Fund to host a discussion where we can discuss:
what works well with grant programmes that we have accessed (not just Lottery ones);
what we'd like to see done differently with grant programmes in an ideal world (helpful for us at FVA to know too - we work with others to develop and support grant programmes);
the type of projects you may want to progress in the coming months (not a detailed discussion, just a sentence or two at this stage);
the funding pressures we think we'll face in the coming months.
This isn't a funding surgery - the Lottery staff are not attending to describe their current programmes, but want to be part of the discussion so that they can feed it into their internal processes for developing future grant programmes and criteria. It will also help Lottery staff to support organisations looking to access current grant programmes. FVA will host and write up the session, and share the key points with other funders too.
