About Improve your Fundraising - Identifying Need

Who can attend?
This training is for staff, volunteers and trustees (board members) of charities, community groups, social enterprises and faith groups based in, or providing most of their services to, the people of Waltham Forest.
Please contact us if you are unsure that you will meet this eligibility criteria.
This workshop is particularly relevant for:
... those working in the voluntary and community sector looking to improve their planning and fundraising skills. It is particularly useful for trustees and managers.
Need is the term used to describe an issue or situation where something needs to change to make things better, for a person, a group of people, an environment or an organisation. Identifying need is the starting point of any project. Funders want to know that you have good reasons for your project.
We encourage you to attend with a colleague. There will be a limit of two people from each organisation. You must both book separately.
This training will help you:
- Choose project activities that enable you to accomplish the true desired impact
- Monitor performance during and at the end of the project to ensure that you’re meeting the real needs
- Realise when the project isn’t meeting the real needs so that you can suggest modifying or cancelling it
At the end of workshop you will have:
- a better understanding on what the ‘ project need’ means and how to demonstrate that
- an increased knowledge on how to find out more about local needs
This is a practical workshop to help you to explore ways to identify and analyse the need for your project. During the workshop we will look at the key points for carrying out a needs assessment - the key questions that need to be addressed - and then where and how to look for the right evidence.
As this will be a practical workshop and we will access websites and search for evidence, the participants should bring their own laptops (unfortunately we do not have resources to provide computers for everyone).
