Support for Selly Oak NNS groups

Neighbourhood Networks Schemes work to prevent social isolation and loneliness in people aged 50 and over.

Birmingham Community Matters connections iconSelly Oak Neighbourhood Networks Scheme (Selly Oak NNS) has awarded Birmingham Community Matters with funding to support community and voluntary groups in the area* that help them to achieve their aims.

*That’s groups in Billesley, Bournbrook, Selly Park, Bournville, Cotteridge, Brandwood, Kings Heath, Druids Heath, Monyhull, Highters Heath, Kings Norton North, Stirchley, Weoley and Selly Oak.

We held a Fundraising Q&A online at the end of April with John Ellery of grant fundraising consultancy Get Grants. Representatives from 18 different groups attended. People were able to ask questions about the current fundraising terrain, particularly in regards to the coronavirus crisis.

You can view the slides from the webinar here.

We’re holding another one at 11am on Thursday 21 May. Previous attendees are welcome to join us (it will not be a direct repeat of the last one) and we encourage new people too.

Feedback from our first webinar:

“I thought that Jo [BCM’s Development Coordinator] and John [of Get Grants] presented wonderfully in an informative and reassuring manner given the current funding climate.”

“Felt relaxed and well organised. Easy to follow. Great advice. Good platform to use as well.”
