We have come up with a rough timetable for Battersea Charities Week that we’d like to share with you! All opportunities to get to know each other and learn from each other 

Monday 24th June: PARTNERSHIPS DAY – an evening event will launch Battersea Charities Week including speed dating, developing solutions to local issues and a sharing of community resources noticeboard.

Tuesday 25th June: VOLUNTEERING DAY – a morning event to learn more about the value of volunteers, get better at recruitment, supporting & motivating volunteers, skills-based volunteers and more.

Wednesday 26th June: FUNDING DAY – Meet the Funders event in the morning with 8 local funders. 2 workshops in the afternoon on ‘Bid Writing’ and ‘I’ve got the money, now what?’ (exploring contracts, monitoring and evaluation and reporting back to funders)

Thursday 27th June: EFFECTIVENESS AND SUSTAINABILITY – have breakfast with local Trustees to find out what it’s really like; learn by taking part in a role play Board meeting; explore governance for faith groups.

Friday 28th June: COMMUNICATIONS: ‘Communications on a shoe string’ with a workshop on creating video content/social media as well as a workshop on campaigning on the issues that matter most to you.

Saturday 29th June: FESTIVAL DAY – yes it’s the Falcon Road Festival. Time to celebrate! As well as our popular stalls we will also host a networking social event to celebrate the end of our week and get to know each other over a beer or coke!

Please note that we are still finalising arrangements so they are subject to change.


Big Local SW11 and Battersea Alliance are all about strengthening our community by local residents and organisations working together to decide and create what we want for Battersea.
