Neighbourhood Network meeting 2022
Neighbourhood Network 2022

Community Networking Sessions 

Frome Town Council are hosting networking sessions for anyone who works in the VCFSE sector in Frome and the surrounding villages. Each session will have a different theme to be explored together and an opportunity to network and build connections.  

Please book using the links above.

Support for groups

Monthly drop-in sessions with local fundraiser Ruth Knagg. These sessions are designed for community groups and organisations who are looking for support or advice on any topic. They will be particularly helpful for established groups who are undergoing transition or changing circumstances. Ruth has a wealth of experience in the VCSFE arena and will call upon her expertise both locally and in the wider charity arena to offer support and guidance, or a friendly ear. She may not have all the answers but will certainly be able to point you in the right direction or link you to the most appropriate resources. If you are unable to make any of these drop-in sessions, or you have a very specific concern, you can email Ruth directly at ruthknagg@outlook.com to arrange a one-to-one appointment.
