The HEY Network in partnership with The National Lottery hosted an online 'meet the funders' event with organisations working with young people and their families in Enfield and Haringey.
The event took place yesterday, with the National Lottery Fund grants officers Sophie (Enfield) and Maxine (Haringey). Over 40 voluntary organisations attended to learn about the funding opportunities on offer from the National Lottery and were able to ask questions about the suitability of their project.
We absolutely love how accessible The National Lottery are in engaging with community groups. This was a great opportunity for smaller organisations to meet a large funder and overcome barriers of engagement. We understand that many have since contacted the Grants Officers to continue the engagement which is fantastic. - Seema Chandwani, Project Manager, The HEY Network
Support for local organisations is a key objective for the HEY Network and we are really grateful to the National Lottery for coming to meet local organisations.
