The Buckinghamshire Community Funding Fair will take place at the Gateway Conference Centre in Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury on Wednesday 1st March 2017.
Over twenty different funding organisations will be at the fair to talk to local charities, social enterprises and community groups about the funds and grants they could access to support their work.
It’s the perfect opportunity for anyone looking to find funding for their organisation or projects to meet with potential funders, collect information and have brief face-to-face discussions with a huge range of organisations, all under one roof.
There will also be a programme of short, informative talks from leading figures in the charitable world including the Big Lottery Fund, Heart of Bucks and Community Impact Bucks who will offer advice and insight into how to create sustainable funding.
Many of last year’s delegates said their knowledge of local and national funding had increased from their visit, saying the fair ‘inspired me to think about different sources of funding‘ and is ‘always a useful and informative visit‘.
The event runs from 1.00pm to 5.30pm. Although the fair is free to attend booking in advance is essential via the Community Impact Bucks website at www.communityimpactbucks.org.uk or by calling 0300 111 1250.
