Approximately 130 individuals representing Aberdeen based charities, organisations and sports groups attended this event and gained first-hand experience on best practice for funding applications.
"I would like to thank everyone who attended the Funding Futures event at Northfield Community Centre on the 6th October which was hosted by myself & Kirsty Blackman MP. We had around 130 individuals representing a huge spread of organisations across Aberdeen's communities and third sector.
"I am grateful for The Big Lottery Fund, ACVO, sportscotland and The Robertson Trust attending, providing workshops with information on the range of application routes, methods of organising and how to complete applications in order to increase the likelihood of success.
"I hope everyone who attended found the event beneficial - there certainly seemed to be a good buzz to the event.
"I hope it will help see an increase in the amount of funding coming to projects in Aberdeen as a result."
