Pembrokeshire Funding Fair 2011
The annual Pembrokeshire Funding Fair took place on 15th November 2011 at the Queens Hall in Narberth. It was another successful event, attracting over 140 representatives from voluntary groups and social enterprises from all over Pembrokeshire. As well as a great opportunity to catch up on the latest funding news from more than 20 funding bodies, it was also a great networking opportunity.
The exhibitors in the main hall included key national funders; the Big Lottery Fund, The Institute of Fundraising, Environment Wales, The Community Foundation in Wales, Lloyds TSB Foundation and The Millennium Stadium Charitable Trust and more, along with local funders including; PAVS, Pembrokeshire County Council, Milford Haven Port Authority and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
This year’s presentations focused on helping groups to develop a more sustainable approach to funding which is key in the ever competitive climate for grant money. Presentations included information on tendering for small contracts from Pembrokeshire County Council's Procurement Team and loan information from the WCVA's Communities Investment Fund. Professional assistance was available from Business in the Community and the Pembrokeshire ProHelp Network, as well as tips on online marketing from PAVS’ RDP Circuit Rider and Communities 2.0 projects.
Officers are happy to provide copies of presentations or any other information to those who were unable to attend. Please contact the Learning and Development Team on 01437 769 422 or e-mail email@example.com
The Pembrokeshire Funding Fair was supported by Collaborative Communities which is part funded by the EU's Convergence European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.

PAVS Funding Fair 2009 - A big success with over 130 attendees!!
Have a look at our event video to see what this popular fixture on the PAVS calendar is all about.
Read the event report below and view the presentations from SITA Trust and Big Lottery Fund here.
The ever popular PAVS Funding Fair 2009 took place at the Queen's Hall in Narberth on Tuesday 17 November with a record attendance of over 130 people. Representatives from voluntary and community groups in Pembrokeshire attended a selection of presentations and browsed the funding exhibition throughout the day.
The feedback was really positive with delegates welcoming the chance to speak face-to-face with funders about the work of their organisations. One suggestion was to have some case studies of groups who have made successful funding applications so we hope to incorporate that next year.
It was a really busy day for funders who had numerous conversations with delegates about the funding available through their schemes. During the event groups also had the opportunity to attend informative presentations from the SITA Trust, Business in the Community and Big Lottery Fund.
A big thank you to all of the funders who attended and to the presenters from SITA Trust, Big Lottery Fund and Business in the Community. It was a pleasure to welcome the SITA Trust to Pembrokeshire for the first time, travelling to the event from their HQ in Gloucester to promote the Enhancing Communities Fund which supports groups working within a 10 mile radius of the Withyhedge Landfill site (near Haverfordwest). Thanks also to the Queen's Hall for use of the facilities and the help given by staff to get the venue ready on the morning.
Following on from the success of this event the Development Team at PAVS look forward to organising a similar event in 2010. Thank you for supporting the event and we hope to see you again next year! Details will be published in the PAVS Quarterly newsletter in 2010. If you would like to be notified about the 2010 event, as details become available, then please e-mail email@example.com
