Free funding workshop

Advice on applying for funding and monitoring the progress of community projects is on offer at a free workshop being run by the North York Moors, Coast & Hills LEADER Programme in partnership with the Ryedale VCS Forum.

The workshop takes place at 6.45pm on Wednesday 18 April at Cropton Village Hall and is open to anyone in the North York Moors, Howardian Hills, Cleveland Hills and Vale of Pickering.

The event will provide hints and tips to those either developing or delivering a project funded by LEADER, the Big Lottery, a local authority or other funding source.

The evening will be a mix of presentations from speakers including Liz Scott from Defra and Sarah Lally-Marley from Ryedale Voluntary Action and informal discussions around best practice from those who have delivered successful projects.

Mike Horrocks, the North York Moors, Coast & Hills LEADER Programme Manager, said:

“There are various sources of funding that communities can tap into so if you’ve a project in mind, come along to the workshop to get some practical advice on making sure your application ticks all the right boxes. Monitoring a project’s achievements and outcomes is always a condition of funding so for those who already have grants in place, we’ll be looking at time-saving ways of tracking progress.”
