More than just funding
“Knowing that Nominet Trust is not just a funder, but has a full support package in place to support projects in meeting their objectives is great and makes it more like a partner.”
Gavin Edmonds, Community & Business Initiative Officer, Dunedin Canmore
We regularly support small organisations who are attempting to tackle big social problems with limited backing and capacity. Which is why, we aim to build that capacity by providing a range of business planning and communications support. In collaboration with trusted partners, we aim to:
- research the needs of their end user community
- share project results with influencers and organisations aiming to achieve similar goals
- raise awareness of social issues identified by their project
- develop their organisation through training and business planning support
- identify, pitch for and secure further investment.
We also facilitate regular networking sessions, giving project partners an opportunity to exchange ideas, share experiences and identify opportunities for collaboration.
This ‘funder +’ approach demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that our projects realise their full potential and make a significant difference to the greatest number of people.
Project partners can currently take advantage of:
Nominet Trust Academy
|As part of our 'Funder+' offering, the Academy presents our project partners with a variety of learning opportunities from 1:1 mentoring and peer support to core learning from expert tutors. The Academy focuses on developing the skills for creating sustainable enterprises and achieving the greatest possible social impact.|
Communication support via Media Trust
|In partnership with Media Trust, we are currently offering selected project partners a package of communications support including a bespoke communications audit, specialist mentoring, places on training courses and specific advice to meet their needs.|
