Do you need advice on how to approach a fundraising strategy? Or ideas about which grant funding opportunities to apply to?

Local Trust is offering online surgery discussions with experts from Stir to Action for Big Local areas. Big Local partnerships can book an individual 45-minute call with an advisor to have an informal one-to-one conversation, an opportunity to get some brief advice or guidance if you have a question or issue that you’d like to chat through with someone relating to fundraising.

Surgeries could be especially helpful for areas considering or in the early stages of thinking about bringing in funding beyond Big Local. Alternatively, it is also an opportunity for Big Local areas who already have experience with external funding and writing bids to get a second opinion.

These surgery sessions will take place on 25th January 2024 with times available throughout the day, the first at 10am and last one at 5pm. You can book a timeslot at this link. Multiple people from your area are welcome to attend your surgery. There are 8 slots and times are available on a first come, first served basis. If these times don’t suit you please do contact us on the email below.


When you click sign up it will offer you the following times/dates. You can only sign up for one and bookings close 7 days before each slot:
