Our Funding support worker (Kaye) and Governance worker (Kathy) spoke to us live about the sector, small groups, funding opportunities and gave us their hints and tips.Kathy Faulks and Kaye Wilson are always in demand so we decided to talk to them live on Facebook and tried to answer some questions submitted by groups and people working in the third sector in Leeds.
Questions included "What's the best place to find out about funding opportunities for small organisations?", "We received Awards for All Lottery Funding for our community group last year — just wondering can you bid for it two years in a row and if so does it lesson or increase our chances of getting funding a second time around?" and "At what point should an informal interest group become more formal, eg adopt a constitution?"

We are hoping to run more live chats in the future, you can let us know if there is a topic you want us to discuss or a question you have which you think someone at VAL could answer using the hashtag #VALlivechat on Facebook or Twitter.
