Roll out the red carpet, put your best frock on and grab some popcorn! The Connect Fund hosted its first introductory webinar today.
How does your project fit within the Connect Fund?
You can sit back, relax and watch the webinar to find out.
Find out more about our first £1 million of grants made to 25 different projects across 6 regions of England.
The webinar allows grantees and other interested stakeholders (you) to understand Connect Fund grant projects, and to better connect to the stories, resources and findings being generated by the network.
The webinar provides an overview of the Connect Fund, its current grant portfolio, and the key themes and issues that have emerged. Connect Fund Manager, Jessica Brown, presents each of the 25 grants that have been made to date.
Two grantees, Dave Thornett of the Key Fund and Bonnie Chiu of the Diversity Forum, play a starring role in the webinar to provide a more in-depth presentation of their projects.
What stories do you have that you can share how your work has either connected to more diverse or underserved VCSEs, or positively equipped VCSEs to develop enterprise models?
The webinar ends with a call to action for all grant recipients to make use of the collaborative tools that have been developed.
