Anne Faulkner

Summer might be just around the corner, but there are a number of big opportunities available that you can get your teeth into before you head off for a well earned break.

Do make sure you have a look at the first article below about a new fund from NIACE. There are grants of up to 65,000 available for organisations who support learning in the community - something that we know a lot of our centres are already doing on a daily basis with fantastic results.

I’m also really excited to be able to tell you about our new ‘Critical friend’ service which we hope will be a great help to you if you decide to make an application for the NIACE Community Learning Fund.

If you join our Writing Better Bids webinar on Monday we’ll have a look at your application and give you some advice on where it can be improved to make sure you have the best chance possible of securing funding for your centre.

Good luck with any applications you make this month, do drop us a line if you’re successful, either via our Facebook page or by emailing help@ukonlinecentres.com.

Best wishes
