Support for your Bristol Impact Fund application from Voscur
The Bristol Impact Fund will open for applications for medium and large grants this month. The fund’s purpose is ‘to build city resilience by growing the power of communities experiencing the greatest inequality.’ Details about funding priorities and intended impacts for the next round of applications are outlined on the Voscur website.
Booking is now open for Voscur’s programme of free support, which includes training courses, briefings, peer learning workshops and one-to-one support surgeries. These sessions will cover governance, bid writing, safeguarding, monitoring and evaluation, collaboration, diversity and inclusion and developing community-led projects.
Bristol City Council is offering online sessions to find out more about the fund and the application process on Friday 5 March (11am-12pm), Monday 8 March (2-3pm) and Tuesday 16 March (11am-12pm). They’re also running three workshops about asset-based community development on Wednesday 10 March (11am-1pm), Wednesday 17 March (3-5pm) and Monday 29 March (11am-1pm).
