VCSE Connect Forum – Improvements, Influence & Funding the Future
REGISTER ON EVENTBRITE
Support the Prelaunch of the Brent Community Grant Programme at the upcoming VCSE Connect Forum and find out if your organisation could benefit from this new funding opportunity. £1million is available across Brent for projects that benefit local communities and make positive change.
At this forum meeting we look forward to connecting and collaborating on how to maximise these new funding opportunities and share our strategic objectives and developments to policy makers.
Together we can build stronger communities that address the causes of poverty, inequality, and being ever ready to respond in the event of an emergency.
