Funding Fair - Meet the Funders and Advice Services

Funding Fair flags
Funding and Advice Services

In this section, you'll find short videos from a range of funding support and advice services, including some of the major funding sources that we know you will want to know more about.

There will be more videos added from a wider range of funding sources and services as the Fair continues, so please do visit us again.

These will help you put faces to names, and save you time and disappointment by getting the key headlines of funders priorities and processes. No matter how good your idea, you need to go to the right funder with it.

You'll also find an introduction to the range of services, and some of the people, from across the Connected Voice family. You can discuss your approaches to funding with our Support and Development Team throughout the year, not just during the Fair. It's what we do. You can contact Connected Voice using our main number 0191 232 7445 or by email and if you are outside of Newcastle or Gateshead, we can put you in touch with our sister organisations across the region.

Why not use our handy Funding Checklist to outline your funding priorities. This will help you clarify your idea, identify what you need for success and help you communicate it quickly and clearly to everyone.

If you are a funder or other exhibitor who wants to contribute , please do get in touch. This isn’t about increasing demand on funders resources, but of helping inform potential applicants of how to prioritise their fundraising time and energy, and avoiding approaches that don’t fit. So it’s a win all round. The closing date for new videos will be Friday 11 July.

Using the Fair couldn't be simpler. Just visit the different Areas, click on the images and it will take you to the video on our own Connected Voice You Tube channel. For the best experience, we suggest that you switch off 'autoplay next video' on your own You Tube settings, as otherwise you may be taken to unrelated videos. This is down to you and outside the control of Connected Voice.
