Workshop 1: Sport England Funding
This workshop aims to increase awareness of Sport England Funding opportunities including Small Grants and Community Asset Fund. The workshop will provide an overview of the application process and offer advice and guidance on the key information required to submit a robust application to Sport England.

Workshop 2: The Community Foundation - Crowdfunding
This workshop will have two elements to the session. The Community Foundation will start by working through how a club would plan, create and run a crowdfunding campaign using a real example of a campaign run by the presenter. If you have a project in mind we will then help you start to build what a campaign will look like with a checklist and plan. However, you do not need to have an actual project to benefit from this session.
