Girlguiding and Scouts: Funding for collaboration

Wednesday 08/07 | 16:30 - 17:30 | Barbican Centre

Charity collaborations are an appealing prospect for trusts, statutory funders and even corporate partners. For a growing number collaboration is becoming a funding prerequisite. In 2018 Scouts and Girlguiding received support from the Pears Foundation, National Lottery Community Fund and DCMS for a three-year project - Space to Grow Together. This panel discussion with Scouts, Girlguiding and the Pears Foundation is an opportunity to hear honest insight into the successes, challenges and learnings from the collaborative application and project so far. It is also an opportunity to understand more about the funders' support in building collaboration between both charities and the collaborative nature of the funding itself. Prepare to be inspired with top tips to help your organisation seek funding for a collaborative project with another cause, that delivers genuine social impact.
