Start Up Workshop

151 Dale Street, Liverpool
L2 2AH (see map)


This is for anyone thinking about starting a community project or organisation but has yet to take the leap. If you’re based in Liverpool, it’s free!

LCVS will provide you with huge amounts of need-to-know information, which will support both fundraising and service delivery, should you decide to put your plan into action. We’ll also help you to get really clear about the viability of your idea and the optimal next steps.

The session covers:

  • Proving the need for your organisation – how to research and gather evidence that there actually is an issue that needs to be addressed, so that you can design an effective project that’s attractive to supporters, investors, and funders
  • Drafting a project outline – an important document that can be used as the basis for a proposal, pitching your idea to funders and other supporters
  • Choosing the right legal structure – an area that can be a bit of a minefield without some clear guidance
  • A few sources of start-up funding – we’ll let you know what’s available at the moment, for projects like yours
  • Roles & Responsibilities – We will give you an insight into ways to manage your project, the roles of those involved in its management, and how best to plan your work.

FREE to organisations and residents within Liverpool City Council boundaries

£25 for those based outside of Liverpool
