Free Funding

In 2019 and so far in 2020 REAL Fundraising through the REF initiative  has committed £40,573 to community projects and small Charities.  Whilst REAL Fundraising currently has no source of income so can't continue to grow the fund we want to share the entire balance of £6407 available with small Charities who are in such need at present. We wish we could do more and are thinking of other ways we can help fundraise on a voluntary basis, we want to do whatever we can for Charities and the community in their hour of need. To apply for funding simply click on the link called 'apply here for any of the above' that you will find under these boxes.

Here you will find details about the fund, for a summary of our funding in 2019 and so far in 2020 click here.

We have a network of contacts and furloughed staff who are currently volunteering and helping the community in a variety of ways. Many have expressed an interest in doing more so we want to make our network available to you if we can help at all.  Some examples of what we can do for you follow (any other suggestions welcome):  Free welfare calls (to your beneficiaries to check they are ok and refer to relevant services where applicable or just have a chat and offer company). Shopping for at risk people, offering support with your frontline services, helping answer your incoming calls, free advice or just a friendly ear.

Here you will find a small sample of past volunteering projects, or as we call them activist events

Discussion Forum

Solidarity is vitally important in these isolated times. If there is interest REAL has set up a discussion and skill sharing forum that we are keen to offer any charity to join completley free of charge. We are also really interested in fundraising experts who  are happy to offer free advice to Charities to join the network and help. 

This will be a great place to ask questions and to collaborate on ideas of how we can all work together through these difficult times.
