NASP webinar 16 May 2022 

Exploring funding models in the voluntary and community sector 

Join us for this webinar where we will discuss different sources of funding available to the VCFSE sector and the specific needs of funding social prescribing, including a case study of how one social prescribing service is funded. You will come away with an enhanced understanding of different types of funding and how to go about approaching these.  

Please note, we will not be talking about specific funding opportunities and we cannot promise to cover every possible avenue of funding available. 

Who is it for? 

This webinar will be particularly useful for small to medium-sized community groups looking to enhance their funding for social prescribing initiatives. It will also be of interest to anyone who works in social prescribing and wants to understand the funding landscape in more depth.
