Funder Collaboration: Top Tips
Join the Funders’ Collaborative Hub for a morning diving deeper into the Top Tips for Funder Collaboration, as discovered in our freshly launched Funder Collaboration Toolkit. Whether you’re a funder just curious about collaborating for the first time, or have seen the value in working with others this year we welcome you to participate.
Participants will first have a chance to interact with some of the eclectic group of seasoned funder collaborators who helped to shape the Funder Collaboration Toolkit. Our collaborators will share their wisdom and stories of how they overcame challenges in their collaborations. You will also be given opportunities to reflect on your own experiences, and discuss in small groups about how the tips shared will positively change the way you approach your post-Covid response work and relationships
As the mission of the Funders’ Collaborative Hub is to increase understanding, alignment and opportunities for funder collaboration, all our events provide a space where perspectives can be shared, relationships built and and plans for future collaboration hatched.
This session will be run over Zoom and we can cater to any access needs.

Older People Funders' Collaborative
The Older People Funders’ Collaborative aims to bring together a range of different funders committed to supporting work with and for older people across the country. We want to promote better awareness of one another’s work and identify opportunities for collaboration that will benefit the sector in the short, medium and longer terms as we “build back better” following the pandemic.
Following a useful initial session, we are reconvening to reflect on learning from the National Lottery Community Fund’s Ageing Better programme, and discussing the output from a recent collaboration between The Mercers’ Company and Independent Age. Through networking discussions, we hope to identify key barriers and enablers to collaboration to further shape the work of the Collaborative in the future.
We hope to see you at the event
