The communities the groups are based in will benefit by increased funding for much needed community-based support services that have replaced traditional service provision. Without funding and grant support, these community groups cannot survive as many traditional fundraising routes are becoming less viable.
We will be offering Voluntary Community & Social Enterprise groups guidance and practical support with their fundraising by offering a low-cost grant & funding application support service. Although there are already companies that offer this, it is often seen as unattainable due to the high costs involved. We aim to provide a service that is accessible to all.
From experience we are aware that some community led organisations find it challenging to undertake some fundraising related activities: for example, the Lottery requires the involvement of people and communities from the start, so we will provide an accessible service to help identify and deliver community engagement activities for the purpose of grant applications. We are also able to offer support to our clients with face-to-face fundraising activities through event planning, organisation and management.
The monitoring and evaluation of successful grant and funding applications where applicable, to ensure successful applications are used for their intended purpose which will be discussed with our clients and where our assistance is required a robust system will be put in place to ensure compliance is met. This will be a contract between the applicant and us. However, it must be noted that not all grants will require us to be part of the evaluation process as we will be acting on behalf of the applicant, and therefore it will be their responsibility to comply with the grant outcomes and end of grant reporting process.
