Small group sessions

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 small online group workshops, around setting up and running community groups, and fundraising. These informal sessions will have plenty of space for discussion and asking questions. We’ll take suggestions for other topics too. 

If you need support with video calling, we can help: just ask.

Feedback from our first sessions: 

“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.”
