|Welcome and introductions|
The ‘funding spectrum’.
We’ll provide an overview of the different income streams available to your organisation and discuss the pros and cons of each one.
A panel of funders will provide insight into how your organisation can access funding from them. We’ll look at the best way to make contact with the funder, how your organisation can stand out from the rest and how to maintain an ongoing relationship.
You will have the opportunity to question each of the funders and to find out more about how your organisation can engage with them.
