Wales third sector funding conference to focus on beating the cuts

WCVA (Wales Council for Voluntary Action) is holding the Wales third sector funding conference next month in Llandudno, with a focus on advising charities on how they can survive the impending government cuts in funding.

The one-day conference on 12 October 2010, features Joe Saxton of nfpSynergy, Rob Hunter of WEFO, and Mike Walsh of the Big Lottery Fund, as well as case studies from groups that have implemented innovative ways to fundraise.

There is also a range of breakout sessions with speakers like Mick Aldridge of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) on face to face fundraising; Dawn Rowley, director of DHRinterim, with some helpful advice on influencing commissioners; and Alan Eagle of Santander UK Foundation who will explore the subject of improving grant applications. UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake is also presenting a case study of how he and a small group of volunteers used Twitter and Facebook successfully to raise a large sum for a local heritage project.

Delegate fees are £85 for WCVA Members, £115 for other voluntary organisations, and £135 for other organisations.
