First workshop on Applying for Social Investment Funds held

The first workshop was held on 27 September at Stephens House & Gardens, London N3

The first of our new series of workshops on ‘Applying for Social Investment Funds’ got underway yesterday, with a lively group and interesting discussions on how social investment funds can be used in a heritage context. There was a general feeling that the mystique of the subject had been stripped away for the delegates and that this valuable source of funds should be more widely know in the sector. Many of the delegates are now ready to move on to our workshop on setting up a Community Shares scheme, 9 December.

Book now to reserve one of the small number of places available on this important new workshop run by The Heritage Alliance and CAN Invest. Stephens House & Gardens, London N3 (near Finchley Central underground station)

Access to social investment funds has never been easier, and there are several new initiatives offering funds to heritage causes. Some heritage projects like Live Theatre, Newcastle, have already taken advantage of these funds, in a mix with other sources, including trough traditional fundraising. This workshop strips away the complications and provides a clear and practical overview. Delegates will take away from the workshop a) how and where to apply for funds and b) whether social investment is right for their organisation.




All 9 Catalyst Umbrella programmes meeting their objectives

All 9 Catalyst Umbrella programmes meeting their objectives

DC Research has published their interim report on all 9 Catalyst programmes on behalf of the HLF

Although the report is based on data up to and including December 2015, the report provides a useful update on how all the HLF-funded programmes are doing. The key successes are a) the scale of engagement achieved, ie the number of participants and organisations that have received training or support, b) the level of positive feedback received about the various activities delivered. Common themes are increased confidence in fundraising,, changes in fundraising practice and changes in attitudes to fundraising. A common issue is the limited capacity of the sector to make time to engage with the training.

Attendees at complementary workshops reap benefits

Attendees at complementary workshops reap benefits

Evaluation Report shows attendees at multiple workshops are securing funds

Our recent independent Evaluation Report into Giving to Heritage shows that 650 different heritage organisations have attended workshops. A significant minority have attended a number of workshops – we are pleased to see that one delegate has attended seven different workshops! Most of our workshop subjects have content that is complementary to those of other workshops. So for example, ‘Measuring, Communicating and Sharing the Impact of Heritage’in London on 19 October would go well with ‘Structuring your Organisation’ on 8 December. Similarly, attendees at ‘Crowdfunding for Heritage’ on 4 October may also wish to attend ‘How to set up a Community Shares Project’ on 9 December.But attending just one workshop subject can also yield results, as our Evaluation Report shows.
