Community groups across Northumberland can pick up tips from the experts to boost their chances of finding funding.

Northumberland CVA (Centre for Voluntary Service) is hosting a funding fair next week for organisations to chat to national, regional and local funders.

Advice on grant applications will be at hand in pre-booked slots, while the Northumberland VCS Support Services team will be able to talk to groups about developing projects, volunteering and other funding sources.

CVA funding officer Marc Johnson said: “It doesn’t matter whether you just have an initial idea or a well worked up project, or whether your project is large or small. The funding fair gives local groups a great opportunity to discuss their ideas with funders.”

The event takes place at Wylam Institute on May 19. To book up call 01670 858688.
