We would like to welcome our two new staff members working accross the East Riding on the new Beyond Our Four Walls project.
Sarah Hartley – Development Officer
Building resilience through COVID-19 and beyond.
Beyond Our Four Walls is a 6 month project of practical support to organisations in the East Riding of Yorkshire. We will provide free, individual, tailored support to organisations, community groups and charities with advice and guidance on governance issues, policies, business planning and much more. We can work with your group to help you identify what you need and provide you with the help and practical resources to ensure that your organisation is fit-for-purpose, funding ready and resilient for the future.
Contact Sarah on firstname.lastname@example.org, to arrange an informal chat about what we can do together.
Paula Bielby – Funding Officer
I believe that individuals and communities are stronger when they work together to benefit everyone, and that has never been more true than during the pandemic. I have worked on both sides of the VCSE sector over the years, working and volunteering in roles dependent on securing funding and also in roles to offer, secure and manage funding to VCSE organisations. I therefore understand how to help organisations negotiate the funding maze in order to help them achieve their objectives. I am passionate about helping local VCSE organisations to source funding during these difficult times in order to survive, recover, thrive, and build resilience for the future.
If you would like help and advice on funding please contact me at email@example.com.
