What are you doing this week?

This week we’re delighted to be heading to The Gathering at the SECC, Glasgow. The Big Advice Team will be on hand at Stand 82 on both Wednesday & Thursday, and we’re also running two workshops.

You can get Thursday morning off to a great start at 9.30am with the Big Lottery Fund at our Shaping Our Future Plans workshop.

During 2015 we are developing our new programmes; building on our and the sectors’ wider learning about how our Lottery funding should be spent. At this workshop we’ll update you on where we’re at with our thinking, get your feedback and opinions and share our progress so far.

Then at 11.30am on Thursday we are joining with our friends at Social Investment Scotland for our Grants v Loans – Getting The Balance Right workshop, where we’ll look at the world of funding from the traditional grants model to new income streams like social investment loans.

We’ll be joined by Susan Aktemel from Homes for the Good and Chris Martin from Callander Youth Project Trust to talk us through their experience of both kinds of finance.

Places at both workshops are limited to 100 so make sure you go to http://gatherscotland.org.uk/ to book your space.

Remember The Gathering is organised by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Services and is Scotland’s larget event for charities, social enterprises and voluntary organisations.

It’s free and everyone’s welcome so we hope to see you there!
