REPRESENTATIVES from more than 60 community and voluntary groups across Fenland have attended a hugely successful funding fair, organised by the Fenland District Council's community development team.
Hosted by Fenland Council, the event, held in the council chamber at Fenland Hall, was also to launch the first Community Toolkits produced for the voluntary sector in Fenland.
Written jointly by Fenland Council for Voluntary Service and the Council's community development team, the Toolkits are designed to build capacity within the voluntary sector, get organisations into shape to bid for funding and help them try to secure that funding.
The Organisational Toolkit is to help voluntary and community groups improve the way they operate and meet current legislation while the Funding Toolkit is aimed at organisations looking to attract financial support.

The council is committed to supporting and sustaining the voluntary and community sector. It intends to hold regular funding fairs in the future.
Major funding organisations including the Big Lottery, the Local Network Fund, Leader Plus and Global Grants were also on hand to give advice and guidance to community groups. Guests were able to participate in a free workshop on how to use the Toolkits run by a professional trainer from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations.
