On the 17th October, CVS Brent hosted a Funders’ Fair opened by the Mayor of Brent. The event was well attended with over 96 people and we have received positive feedback on the event. Presentations were delivered by Brent Council, Trust for London, The National Lottery Community Fund, Hyde Charitable Trust, City Bridge Trust, Lloyds Bank Foundation, The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Sport England and John Lyon’s Charity.
Organisations also had an opportunity to have 1-2-1 discussions with the above funders’ and meet Chalkhill Community Trust, London Catalyst and learn more about Brent Advice Fund, Brent Community Advice Network and Wembley Futures. There was also plenty of networking opportunities. CVS Brent will be organising surgeries with some of the funders’ over the next six months. This will enable organisations to have more detailed information and 1-2-1 sessions.
