WORKSHOPS

As part of the agreed outcomes from the grants review, Oxfordshire County Council and Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action will be holding two workshops where people interested in applying to either fund can come and talk to us about the application process, putting together a 3-year business plan and to find out more about the criteria for each fund. These workshops will be held in Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action’s training room, The Old Court House, Floyds Row, Oxford OX1 1SS (www.ocva.org.uk)
