Battersea Charity Week, a real success

Battersea Charity week was well attended and a real success. It is great to help our local voluntary organisations to with various workshops about funding, finding volunteers, campaigning, networking

Some of the highlights were:

Campaign stories and tips shared by Fleur from Katherine Low Settlement and Annaliese from SEN Talk parent support group, plus some collaborative campaign brainstorming!


Stories, much like diamonds, live forever. At our case study workshop at Caius House Youth Centre this morning we were able to explore the inspiring stories that lie within our community work.


Really engaging discussions around governance and how to deal with trustee conflicts/power dynamics during The Board Meeting roleplay event at Providence House.
Breakfast, chats about governance, and discussion topics hidden under coasters. What more could you ask for? Thank you to Platform One cafe for hosting us!
Aaron from Katherine Low Settlement led a fantastic session on bid-writing, which not only covered how to write bids, but also how to find the right funders for your project and build relationships with them.
On the 26th of June, we had top tips from 9 funders, a Q&A where we discussed topics such as multi-year funding and accessible applications, topped off with a chance to meet the funders face-to-face over coffee. Thank you to everyone who came along

Attendees at the Governance for Faith Groups event got to enjoy a bit of Giant Jenga!
