Do you have an idea to improve your local community but don't have the money or know where to start?  Or you want to set up a project to improve digital skills and confidence for people in your area?   This event is the perfect opportunity to meet the team who can bring these ideas to life.

Smile’s Community Development team will be in Brough on Thursday 9 November as part of an East Riding wide tour offering free help and support to local charities and groups. 

The Drop-In event is taking place between 11am – 2pm, at Blackburn Leisure Centre

Commissioned by East Riding of Yorkshire Council to support community organisations and groups across the county, Smile want as many charities and groups as possible to know about their services and the free support available to them. In case you don’t already know, help includes everything to do with managing a group or charity such as governance advice; support through the grant finding and application process; a free equipment hire service, guidance on how to attract and manage volunteers and finding and undertaking training.  

The team will be joined by a variety of guests and partners, who can talk to you about ranging from accessing local health and wellbeing support to digital inclusion advice.

If you can’t make the event but need advice, please do get in touch so we can arrange to meet with one of our team.
