Carpenters' Hall


Funding and fundraising for Heritage – special BRICK workshop, Carpenters’ Hall, 24 October 2017

The issue of accessing private sources of funds is a hot topic in the sector, especially at a time of government cutbacks and ever-increasing competition for grants from trusts and foundations. Join us for this special BRICK-Giving to Heritage workshop at the historic Carpenters’ Hall, City of London from 09.30 to 16.00 on 24 October.

In the morning will cover the current UK funding environment for heritage and offer guidance on how and where to look for funds from private sources. In particular, we will cover the crucial issues of ‘making the case for heritage’ and ‘how to measure and communicate heritage impact’ in order to convince donors and get ahead of your competitors. The session will be delivered by Valentine Moby of the Institute of Fundraising.

Social investment is arguably the future of heritage funding and community shares schemes are becoming increasingly popular. Yet few heritage organisations understand what social investment is or how to go about applying for funds. In the afternoon, we will be joined by Rohan Martyres of CAN Invest, who will strip away the jargon and mystery regarding social investment, and offer practical advice on a) whether social investment funds are right for your organisation, b) where to look for finds and c) how to apply.

A small number of free of charge one to one social investment consultancy and support sessions will also be available for anyone who wishes to discuss their organisation’s own requirements in more detail. Consultancy sessions can be booked having first completed this short questionnaire. [Please note these consultancy sessions are now fully booked, but places are still available for the workshop].

This is also a rare opportunity to view one of the major City of London livery halls, and workshop attendees will be given talk on the building and the history of the Worshipful Company of Carpenters.

A draft agenda for the day can be found here.

Also, as a part of registration, you need to complete a brief survey. Information gathered from this survey will help us tailor the BRICK programme to suit the training needs within the heritage regeneration sector.

To make sure that everyone is able to come, we keep our costs as low as possible. Tickets cost just £19 (including lunch). Travel bursaries are available for representatives of community groups (max £25 per person, two per organisation). Please apply by emailing us at brickworkshops@princes-regeneration.org.
