Help Shape Nottingham’s Voluntary and Community Sector Grant Programme

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

Locality UK has been commissioned by Nottingham City Council to undertake research on their behalf, to explore new models and priorities for the City Council’s grant programme for the voluntary and community sector.

This research is taking place in partnership with Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service (NCVS) so that they reach as many local groups and organisations as possible, to hear your views.

There are several ways you can get involved.  

Face to face engagement events

If you would like to contribute your views in person in a workshop setting.  You only need to attend one of these.

Please register for your preferred session using the links below:

Wednesday 3 May 2023, 10am to 12 noon – Bestwood Estate Community Centre, Gainsford Crescent NG5 5HT

Wednesday 10 May 2023, 10am to 12 noon – New Art Exchange, 39-41 Gregory Boulevard NG7 6BE

Wednesday 17 May 2023, 6pm to 8pm – Queens Walk Community Centre, The Meadows NG2 2DF

Locality is taking a co-production process with the sector to design a new grant programme and redefine priorities based on a ‘year zero’ approach. This means addressing the question: If Nottingham City Council was just starting to invest in grants from scratch, what would it look like and what would it fund?

At these workshops, you will hear the background to Nottingham City Council funding, other local authority approaches, have the chance to ask questions and share your views and experience.

Online survey

If you are unable to get to one of the events you can also complete their survey – click here.  The survey is open until Friday 19 May 2023.

Email ncvs@nottinghamcvs.co.uk if you have any questions or would like another way to contribute your views and experience.
