Home / 2020 Funding your Future
2020 is a project that brings together charities and social enterprises from around the city to learn and grow together. Its main aim is to help your organisation plan for and deliver a more sustainable future. That means working to make all the key elements as strong and integrated as possible: your business plan, governance, impact measurement, income diversity, key people and, where appropriate, social investment.
Don’t miss our lunchtime meetings for 2020 Network members interested in accessing free consultancy support. 12.30pm – 1pm on November 12 & November 16 2020. These are run by our Development Officer & Funding lead, Jenny Wildblood. Book your place now.
What's happening with the programme this year?

The organisations we think that would be best suited to this stream have already told us some of the things they’d like to focus on in the short to medium-term, including:
Voscur will lead on the delivery of this stream: primarily Jenny Wildblood.
What is the package of support on offer?

Support will include:
What is the criteria for inclusion in this stream?
In return for the accelerated package of support, we are asking for the following from organisations:
What is expected of organisations?
In addition to meeting the above criteria and commitments, we would ask organisations to contribute to our evaluation of the programme, and to share their learning and development experience with the wider 2020 network.
BBRC will lead on this stream: primarily Jari Moate and Ryan Munn.

Once the two groups are finalised, we’ll be in touch about the next steps. The two initial dates for your diary are:
