This questionnaire is about funding your organisation in the future. We all know that grants are more and more competitive, and that to get access to other sorts of income, organisations need to be well prepared and know all the options.  

What you tell us today will form the basis of a new, bespoke training course for Birmingham that will explore other types of funds and income. We have already done this for small voluntary organisations and BVSC now runs a training programme specifically for them called Business Development and Funding workshop for Small Organisations. Now we want to know what medium to large voluntary organisations need to sustain and grow. 

Any organisation completing this survey will be given priority when allocating places on the training programme.
