This year the County VCSE Funding Fair is taking place in Melton Mowbray and all county-based Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise organisations are invited to come along and meet local and national funders who are actively investing in community groups in your area.

The Funding Fair will give you the opportunity to:

  • Float your ideas past potential funders
  • Learn about current funding programmes
  • Find out how VAL can help you to succeed in your future bids

There are 13 confirmed funders:  Arts Council England, Charity Bank, Futures, Heritage Lottery Fund, Leicestershire & Rutland Community Foundation, Melton Building Society Charitable Foundation, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Samworth Sports Opportunity Fund (morning session only), SHIRE Community Grants, Sport England, The Key Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund: Reaching Communities and Awards for All.

Leicestershire Cares will also be attending to talk about how community groups can use employee volunteering to strengthen their group.

In addition to the main stalls the National Lottery Community Fund will give a short presentation on  the Reaching Communities programme followed by a question and answer session:

Reaching Communities is flexible funding over £10,000 for up to five years that support organisations with great ideas that enable communities to thrive
