Finance and Funding

Course Search


As well as aspirations for local improvement, many town and parish councils are considering the option of taking on assets or services from district, county or unitary councils, or are facing other issues and opportunities that need major funding.

This 60-minute webinar looks at practical steps towards raising funds for these larger regeneration-style projects, whether it be capital money for building or development projects, or revenue funding for staff and services.  Topics covered will include:

  • The difference between capital and revenue funding
  • Finding sources of funding
  • What potential funders will want to hear
  • Other self-help funding routes such as community shares
  • Business planning to support all the above

In terms of a wider regeneration programme, funding can be split into three sections:

  • Team – for the staff and admin costs needed to deliver a regeneration or local improvement programme
  • Template – for the overall strategy that underpins the programme
  • Tasks – for individual projects and services

Depending on local circumstances, projects and services can range widely across:

  • Affordable housing
  • Community-run buildings, including services from those buildings
  • Community-run libraries, in partnership with county councils
  • Public facilities such as toilets, car parks and markets
  • Youth services

Course outline:

The webinar covers all these topics and more, and engages participants through key questions like:

  • What exactly do you need money for in your area?
  • Is the proposed project the best solution to meet local needs and objectives?
  • Are there partners to help deliver the project?
  • How much money do you need, and when?
  • What will be the local benefits from spending the money?

This is a follow-on from the Beginning Local Regeneration webinar in October, but can be attended as a stand-alone topic.
