Grants of up to £1,000 are available through the South West Foundation's Small Grant Programme to help people most in need in our communities.

This funding, made possible by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, is available to small charitable voluntary and community sector organisations with an annual income of less than £25,000, who are working with people most in need in their community. 

Most major funders report that bids fail for simple, basic reasons. The project was ineligible, a question wasn’t answered, the budget didn’t add up, a document wasn’t provided, the bid arrived after the deadline. Most of these problems can be overcome if you plan ahead, and the checklist will help you to do this.

This briefing session is for Bristol community organisations and small businesses. It will include an update on the implementation of Bristol City Council’s Social Value Policy in its first year and what the policy has delivered to date. Participants will find out more about how the council asks bidders to offer social value in tenders and provide the opportunity to discuss their approaches to social value.

Having a good funding strategy saves a lot of time and effort, and makes it more likely that you’ll bring in the resources you need. This framework can be used as a separate Funding Strategy, or incorporated into your Business Plan.

The length of your Fundraising Strategy is dependent on how complex your financial needs are. For a small group, a good strategy can be written on one side of A4.

Although you have a great Social Enterprise idea, you won’t get funding for ideas alone. This link takes you to a concise and useful summary of what you need to do to build an investable product: Turning your vision into an investable proposition.
