The Frontline Network celebrates its first birthday and launches an Events Fund.

Today, on Tuesday 27 June, the Frontline Network is one year old. So much has happened in the first year including:

- Establishing a Steering Group for the Frontline Network
- Working with the first set of Strategic Partners
- Holding the first Frontline Network Conference
- Launching the Frontline Network website, including a Forum, and
- Funding the first set of Ideas through the Ideas Fund.

Over 400 frontline workers are now registered on the Frontline Network website; and the Frontline Network and its partners have held 27 events, attended by approximately 700 frontline workers representing over 120 different organisations. 

We would like to use the opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped us on our journey so far – to members of our Steering Group, to our Strategic Partners, to those who attended our first Conference, to those who have written a blog, to those who have submitted an Idea, to those who have organised or attended one of our events, and to all those frontline workers registered as members and part of the Frontline Network.

To celebrate our first birthday, we are launching an Events Fund. The Frontline Network Events Fund is a pot of money to support events for frontline workers which will help them to learn, share best practice, develop their professional networks, and overcome barriers and challenges.

The Events Fund will only be open to registered members of the Frontline Network. To register with the Frontline Network please join here. The Events Fund is not open to Strategic Partners of the Frontline Network. 

Applicants can apply for up to £500, which can be used to cover the costs of venue hire, refreshments, speakers or participant travel bursaries.

We just need an outline of the purpose and content of the event, what you hope to achieve through the event, how you plan to evaluate this, and what you are applying for funding for.

We consider applications for events funding on a monthly basis and you will be notified of the outcome of your application following the end of the month in which you submitted your application.  

To apply for events funding please complete this short application form and return it to Raks Patel at raks.patel@stmartinscharity.org.uk. 

 

The Frontline Network is supported by the Oak Foundation.
