In the Spring Budget announcement, the UK government launched the Community Renewal Fund and Levelling Up Fund to support communities across the country.
The UK Community Renewal Fund: aims to support people and communities most in need across the UK to pilot programmes and new approaches and will invest in skills, community and place, local business, and supporting people into employment.
The Levelling Up Fund: will invest in infrastructure that improves everyday life across the UK, including regenerating town centres and high streets, upgrading local transport, and investing in cultural and heritage assets.
In order to apply for these investment programmes, organisations are required to submit business cases through their local authority to be considered for submission to Government by 18 June 2021.
To maximise the investment secured in the South East Midlands, we’re hosting two fully funded business case development workshops.
Who should attend?
Organisations interested in applying for investment, or more generally wanting to learn more about how to write a strong business case, are invited to attend this webinar.
The webinar also presents an opportunity for organisations to sense-check existing businesses cases ahead of submission deadlines.
During the webinar, we’ll cover:
- An overview of the Five Case Model
- We’ll look at each of the five cases in detail
- The Strategic Case
- The Economic Case
- The Commercial Case
- The Financial Case
- The Management Case
- What makes a good business case?
- A recap on the Levelling Up and Community Renewal Fund guidance
