Hartlepower Development Team are the recently established voluntary & community sector support agency – Every community and voluntary sector group in the town can now benefit from free advice & assistance – such as:
· Finding funding – Many groups ask: What grant givers are there who might be interested in funding our activities?
· Writing funding bids – How do I go about writing a bid that stands a good chance of success?
· Project planning – How can I think ahead about where we would like our organisation to be in 5 years time?
· Legal structures – Should we become a charity, a Community Interest Company? How important is the legal structure we adopt?
Development Officers Juli Simons and Julian Penton – are keen to hear from any Hartlepool organisation that might benefit from some help in the areas listed above.
Based in the Energy Hub, next to The Causeway pub at 81, Stranton TS24 7QT, there’s free parking and always plenty of tea and coffee.
The team would be pleased to hear from you!
