Normal life is on hold for a while. Which means Birmingham’s small community groups and projects are more important than ever. 

As well as our online surgeries, Birmingham Community Matters is holding webinars (online seminars), around fundraising, support for trustees, and financial planning in response to the coronavirus crisis. We’ll take suggestions for other topics too.

If you need support with video calling, we can help too!  

Dates coming soon

We’re been holding small interactive support sessions, via Zoom, with fundraising expert John Ellery of Get Grants. 

This is a great chance for you to get tailored feedback on a fundraising application you’re currently working on, or one you’ve already submitted which was unsuccessful. 

We’re limiting places to just three or four, so John can tailor the support he gives and to maximise the benefits you get from it.

To apply to take part in a future session, please complete this expression of interest form. We will let you know as soon as we can whether you have a place.

To find out about further opportunities like this one, sign up to our e-newsletter at the foot of this page. 

Feedback from our first webinars: 

“Good both on sources of funding and tips. Clear presentations and bang up to date!” 

“The information was very clearly presented and the webinar provided really helpful networking opportunities.”

“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.”
