'Share and Build' Event Report

9th December 2015

IVAR and London Funders have been undertaking research exploring place-based funding approaches (details on the initial briefing paper can be found here). The study looked at 21 independent trusts and foundations to gather perspectives, opinions and experience of working with 'place' - what it means, how it is delivered and the successes and challenges of these approaches.

In the first of a series of workshops to build on this initial learning with other funders and practitioners, we heard about the progress of the project as well as hearing a presentation from Erik Mesel from the John Lyons Charity about their approach to place-based funding. The presentation can be found here.
