There’s Still Time To Make A Bid – BBC Community Outreach Engagement Programme, Community Doorway

There is still time to make a bid (or seek some advice on a bid) for the BBC community outreach engagement programme, Community Doorway.

This is an opportunity for charities and community organisations to apply for access to some of the skills of BBC staff volunteers in the Greater Manchester and Salford areas.  Skills which might help a group with an event, a website, careers workshops with beneficiaries, creative coaching, or even an explanatory or inspirational video about beneficiaries or volunteers…

Visit to check the priority criteria – they are particularly interested to hear from groups that work with 16-24 year olds, people who are of Black, Asian and Minority ethnicity, and/or groups which are considered to be disadvantaged or socially excluded.

There are four rounds of applications in a year.  The next deadline is 31st October 2014.   They are looking for bids that create opportunities for BBC staff and members of the public to work on a short project together – your bid does not have to be the perfect document when you submit it. The BBC will help develop bids with potential to be approved.
