The Prince’s Regeneration Trust has recently started a new UK wide training and mentoring programme – Building Resources, Investment and Community Knowledge (BRICK). It is a three year programme funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and a number of corporate sponsors, and it is aimed at community groups taking forward heritage-led regeneration projects. For further information about BRICK click here.
The third in the series of BRICK workshops will take place in Plymouth on 02 July 2014. The day-long event will bring together community groups in the South West of England and beyond, interested in learning about:
- Building your team: Board of trustees – roles and responsibilities, life cycle; Engaging the wider community during the project development phase – why, how and when.
- Ideas to options: How to achieve a greater impact with your project by linking with other initiatives and projects in the wider area.
- Project development: Setting up a new business and managing your money – things to consider.
Speakers include representatives of the Real Ideas Organisation (RIO), Harvey’s Foundry Trust, Noema Research and Planning, NatWest and the Prince’s Regeneration Trust. The event will also feature interactive sessions with the speakers, a presentation about Devonport Guildhall and a tour of the venue, which is itself a regeneration project. The day will be chaired by Ros Kerslake, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust’s CEO.
