How to run a successful crowdfunding campaign. Barnstaple Library, Sat 10th Feb. 0930-1630
Come and find out what crowdfunding is all about. See how your community project could benefit from one of the five main types of crowdfunding. Also get to grips with all the success factors you need to have in place BEFORE you launch your crowdfunding campaign.
Another aim of this project is to make your community more united and resilient against the sorts of minor emergencies that cause short-term disruption (power cut, stormy weather, fire, road accident, etc).
To do this we’ll be helping the community strengthen its links to the emergency services, who will be providing access to basic training and facilities where they are able.
Another aspect to the project is to raise awareness of career and volunteering opportunities with these services. The links below will provide more information on these for each specific service.
