Better Working Collaboration Group – Funders, LIOs and Local Authorities 12th November North of Tyne

The NE & Cumbria Funders' Network Better Working Collaboration Group meetings bring together funders, social investors, Local Authorities and LIOs, to share new information on the challenges and opportunities facing the sector and to discuss greater collaboration and joint working. In 2020 these meetings will travel around the region and focus on a number of particular local authorities areas.


In 2020 these meetings will enable a deep dive into 2/3 local authority areas in each place.  In preparation for the meeting, members will commit to preparing the following ready for circulation 1 week before the meeting:

Funders: Collating and analysing data or insight into funding applications from the area – numbers, quality, scale, going up/ going down, common reasons for rejection etc.

Local Authority: Complete or update the LA statutory funding template before the meeting and work with LIO on compiling overview template on the LA area

LIOs – Compile information on VSCE sector in the area, key issues etc and work with LA colleagues on completing overview template.

At the meeting we will use this information as the basis for a discussion and talk about how we can work together to address some of the key VCSE sector and community challenges/ issues in the area.

At this meeting we will focus on 3 local authority areas: Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland.
