Neighbourhood Networks Schemes work to prevent social isolation and loneliness in people aged 50 and over.
Selly 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 series of Fundraising Q&A online sessions with John Ellery of grant fundraising consultancy Get Grants to support groups in the Selly Oak NNS. Representatives from 18 different groups attended. People were able to ask questions about the current fundraising terrain, particularly in regards to the coronavirus crisis.

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.”
