Caroline to Host Funding Fair

Local MP, Caroline Dinenage, is hosting a free Funding Fair on Friday 21st July at 10am for voluntary groups and charitable organisations in the Gosport Constituency

The event, which is being co-hosted by The National Lottery Community Fund and the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Fund, will include information from the local funding team to help organisations understand what support and funding is out there and how to bid for it.

The meeting will also include local organisations who have been successful at securing Lottery funding, to offer tips and advice on the process.

This includes Motiv8 who will be joining the event to talk about their successful £495,944 grant from the National Lottery Community Fund, which enabled them to expand their services for local young people.

Commenting Caroline said: “Our charities and voluntary organisations really stepped up to support local residents during the pandemic. However, Covid 19 had a massive impact on their fundraising and income. 

I hope this event will help our local groups understand more about what support is out there and how to successfully apply for it.”

Organisations in the Gosport Constituency can sign up to the free event via
