An Insight into the Prince’s Regeneration Trust’s Heritage and Regeneration Programme

By 23rd June 2014 No Comments

The Prince’s Regeneration Trust new UK wide training and mentoring programme – Building Resources, Investment and Community Knowledge (BRICK) is bringing its heritage and regeneration programme to the Devonport Guildhall on the 2nd July. Part of a three year programme funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and a number of corporate sponsors, it is aimed at community groups taking forward heritage-led regeneration projects. For further information about BRICK please click here.

The third in the series of BRICK workshops will take place in Plymouth on 02 July 2014. The day-long event will bring together community groups in the South West of England and beyond, interested in learning about:

  • Building your team: Board of trustees – roles and responsibilities, life cycle; Engaging the wider community during the project development phase – why, how and when.

  • Ideas to options: How to achieve a greater impact with your project by linking with other initiatives and projects in the wider area.

  • Project development: Setting up a new business and managing your money – things to consider.

    Speakers include Ed Whitelaw of the Real Ideas Organisation’s (RIO) Transforming Places Through Enterprise programme, the Harvey’s Foundry Trust, Noema Research and Planning, NatWest and the Prince’s Regeneration Trust. The event will also feature interactive sessions with the speakers, a presentation about Devonport Guildhall and a tour of the venue, which is itself a regeneration project. The day will be chaired by Ros Kerslake, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust’s CEO.

    We encourage all community groups and all those involved in heritage-led regeneration projects to take the opportunity to learn through BRICK over the next three years. Further information about BRICK events will be disseminated through various heritage and regeneration agencies and membership organisations, local and regional press, social networking sites (Facebook and Twitter), email and via our new BRICK web site once that is up and running.

    If you think that the workshop in Plymouth might benefit you and would like to attend, please note that a registration fee of just under £20 per person will apply. This includes the cost of lunch and refreshments, online registration charges and VAT. A small number of travel bursaries are available on application.
