Funding fair for local charities

Date published: 07 October 2019

Local charity Action Together is hosting its annual Funding Fair for voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations from across Oldham, Tameside and Rochdale on Thursday 17 October.

Action Together's Funding Fair is an opportunity to receive advice from national, regional and local funders and network with other VCSE organisations.

Confirmed funders include Reaching Communities, Children in Need, National Lottery Heritage Fund, Manchester Guardian Charitable Trust and Tameside Community Wellbeing Investments.

Liz Windsor-Welsh, Action Together’s Chief Executive, commented: “We’re proud to be able to give help to organisations across Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside by bringing together a wide range of national, regional and local funders to showcase their funding opportunities.

“Our funding fair is designed to give local organisations an opportunity to discover the priorities, allocation process and ask key questions to a range of funders which will enable the groups to identify a variety of useful funding streams and strengthen their funding applications.”

Action Together’s Funding Fair will be followed by its Annual General Meeting which will provide an update on its activities and impact in 2018-19, priorities for the future year and elections for new trustees.
