Fundraisers’ Network Group Meetings

We are aware of the importance of understanding the opportunities available to your organisation and the pressures of fundraising. We hold regular meetings to bring fundraisers together, to provide peer support, to meet funders face to face, to find out about local development and activities and seek support.
