Fundraiser Network Meetings

These meetings are a mixture of different fundraising topics with expert guest speakers or 1:1 surgeries from a specific grant fund holder or a member of the Development Team.

They are usually held monthly and are a forum not only fundraising debate, but for peer support, information exchange, informal training and networking.

Free to all.
