The world of funding can be complex to navigate and if you don’t know what funders are looking for it can make it difficult to get the funding your organisation or project needs. Acquiring funding is particularly important for many organisations at the moment to plug the gaps in cash flows and to allow them to adapt their way of working in response to the covid-19 crisis. Join Founder and CEO of The Circle, Kirsty Thomson for a webinar where she’ll be covering what you need to know about the world of funding.
This session will include an overview of funding and an in depth look at the process of preparing a funding application, with interactive activities and time for a Q&A session where Kirsty can answer your burning questions.
Kirsty has a wealth of knowledge and experience working in and with charities and social enterprises over 20 years to secure more than £13 million in funding. She helps them become better businesses to help communities thrive.
Kirsty is also a Saltire Fellow through Entrepreneurial Scotland and in 2017 Kirsty was recognised as a Women of Inspiration by the Association of Scottish Businesswomen. Last year The Circle won Social Impact Business of Year in The Courier Business Awards. Kirsty was also listed in The Courier’s Impact 100 list and is on the NatWest WISE100 2018 list, which recognises the most inspiring and influential women in social enterprise, impact investment and mission-driven businesses in the UK.
