This year, we hosted several webinars which were collectively attended by around 400 people. They were able to access almost £100,000 of advice via our webinar series, meaning that each attendee was able to access around £250-worth of support to help develop their charity, voluntary organisation or social enterprise. Norfolk Community Foundation has been able to reach this amazing achievement is thanks to our excellent relationships with local groups, businesses and individuals who give us their expertise, knowledge and time for free. Through our extensive, ever-growing network, we are able to source leading professionals to give engaging and informative talks on a wide range of topics. Many of the businesses who provide webinars are part of the Norfolk ProHelp group, who provide pro bono advice to charities in Norfolk.
Furthermore, we are always looking to develop our offering. Our listening project, coalitions, networks, discussions and grant monitoring give us a rounded picture of sector needs, allowing us to respond quickly to rising demands. This means that our webinars are in tune with the Norfolk communities we serve. 85% of participants said they found the webinar they attended useful. If there is a topic that your organisation is interested in, speak to Lauren and let her know what would be of most help.
Next year, we plan to expand our webinars even further. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn for the latest webinar news, or sign up to our newsletter below.
