The Fore - In from the cold: Working together to develop the voluntary sector in Havering
17 May | 17:00-18:00
In this session, The Fore will discuss the key features and findings of their pilot programme in Havering and showcase how this model could be replicated in partnership with other London boroughs.
In January 2020, following the London Funders ‘Cold Spots’ study and subsequent meetings, The Fore launched the Havering Funding Programme (HFP). The programme is a unique collaboration with Havering Compact and the London Borough of Havering. The aim was to demonstrate that, through The Fore’s collaborative approach to grant giving, charities and social enterprises in Havering could access both funds and tailored support.
An initial assessment of the programme has found significant impact on the amount of funding reaching Havering, which in turn is strengthening the Voluntary and Community Sector. In this session, we will discuss the key features and findings of the pilot and showcase how this model could be replicated in partnership with other London boroughs.
