Network and Engage with The Wheel (Online Meeting)

Tailormade for voluntary organisations, or those who have five staff or less, this free networking and information session is your opportunity to meet up with other community and voluntary organisations, share the good work you are doing and the challenges you have overcome, and learn what supports are available to you.

The session will also include a special focus on how The Wheel’s Access Europe Programme can support small organisations to gain access to EU funding. 

Learning Outcomes 

Participants will leave the session with greater awareness of: 

  • The variety of work being done by community and voluntary organisations, charities, and social enterprises 
  • The supports and services provided by The Wheel and other service providers  
  • The EU funding landscape and supports to small organisations for getting on the EU funding ladder.
