Funding Fair flags

Expert Seminars

Helping you build your skills, experience and success in funding is what we're all about.

We've assembled a series of short Expert Seminar videos, to provide a range of guidance, support and top-tips to help you build your fundraising skills and direct your precious time and energy to their most effective use.

This why we call our event a Funding Fair and not a Funders' Fair – it's about you and your funding, and helping you be even better for the communities you work in and with. It's your Fair!

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. Please note links to Powerpoint slide presentations may not work on Mac devices.

Cyber Security – Keeping your funding safe and secure

Connected Voice have been working with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and National Association for Voluntary and Community Action (NAVCA) to provide training for organisation on keeping safe on line. The NCSC have recently released a streamlined version of the training highlighting the top tips for staff and volunteers to keep organisations safe and secure.

The training takes 12 minutes and is followed by an option quiz to test your understanding.
