As holders of the NCC commission to provide support services to the VCS in Northumberland from June 2014 to September 2021, Northumberland has made some wonderful achievements and we’ve put just a few of them together into an infographic as a celebration of our work over the past seven years.
Looking just at the practical support we provided, here are some of the headlines:
Over the course of our holding of the commission, we have supported a total of 1,508 groups with information, advice, training and practical help on issues including funding, governance, safeguarding and involving volunteers.
We delivered 16 multi-funder Funding Fairs in 11 different areas of the county, allowing 553 groups to attend 2,456 appointment slots. That’s a total of 409.33 hours of face to face advice given direct to Northumberland groups by funders as a result of our work.
After receiving our support, over the seven years we have held the commission, groups in Northumberland have successfully raised a total of at least: £14,500,000 to fund their activities.
