The Virtual Funding Fair is being organised by North Northamptonshire Council in partnership with the Voluntary Sector ‘Northamptonshire Development and Funding Workers Network.’

Cllr Andy Mercer, executive member for housing and communities, at North Northamptonshire Council said: “Now more than ever, community projects are seeking financial boosts to help them mitigate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and this virtual funding fair is essential for anyone looking to fund a project who wants to find out more about the opportunities available to them.

“There are plenty of schemes on offer that people may not be aware of, with new schemes appearing all the time, so we would encourage anyone who is considering a project to join us at one, or more, of our sessions between 15 - 17 June.”

All sessions will take place on Zoom and places must be booked in advance by completing the online form at www.northnorthants.gov.uk/fundingfair21.
