The GRCC Funding Event – For VCS Organisations

On the 24th October, GRCC will be holding a funding event which will give voluntary and community (VCS) organisations a chance to develop funding skills.

This FREE event, which is exclusive to VCS Organisations, will be held at the Pavilion, Hatherley Lane, Cheltenham GL51 6PN and is set to be an exciting day packed with activities.

There will be Funder’s Panel where members of the audience can pose questions to the panel of local and national funders.

There will be the opportunity for attendees to have one-to-one sessions with funding advisors if there are any specific queries they may have. You may have a specific project that you are looking to fund, or need help and support from a ‘critical friend’ to check over your application.
