The Northamptonshire Virtual Funding Fair 2022 will take place via Zoom from Tuesday 7 to Thursday 9 June.

After a difficult few years for community projects, this will be the opportunity for groups from across Northamptonshire to listen to presentations from local and national funders who can help contribute towards community projects in the county.

Across the 3 days, there will a variety of funders presenting including the Heritage Lottery, Northamptonshire Community Foundation and OPFCC, plus many more organisations who can all help provide much needed funding for projects. Each of the sessions will provide information on how best to apply for grants, along with a hints and tips presentation.

The Virtual Funding Fair is being organised by North Northamptonshire Council and West Northamptonshire Council in partnership with the Voluntary Sector ‘Northamptonshire Development and Funding Workers Network.’

I am pleased that we have been able to partner up with like-minded organisations once again to host the Northamptonshire Virtual Funding Fair. After a difficult time for community groups, the sessions on offer are essential for anyone looking to fund a project and wants to find out more about the opportunities available to them.

With new schemes and funding opportunities appearing all the time, we would encourage anyone who is considering a community project to join us at one, or more, of our sessions between 7 - 9 June.
