All of the material on this page is free for you to use whenever you want.

You can use it to help you drum up votes as you apply for funding from the Aviva Community Fund. Perhaps more importantly, you can also use it to find ways to raise awareness of your project locally and build up your network of supporters.

You’ll find all sorts of valuable information here, including masterclasses on social media, PR, recruitment and building a brand.

So why not have a look around and see how we can help you boost your profile.

We’ll be adding new tools over the coming months so keep checking back to see what’s new.

Boost your profile with our masterclasses

The Aviva Community Fund offers you more than just the chance to win funding.

To help you boost your organisation’s profile, we’re running masterclasses in four cities across the UK, covering four topics:

  • How to make social media work for you
  • How to be a PR guru and get media attention
  • How to recruit volunteers and find supporters
  • How to build a successful brand

Learn from the experts

In each masterclass, experts from Aviva and the industry will take you through the techniques and methods you can use to boost the profile of your organisation.

You’ll also get the chance to ask the experts questions in an interactive Q&A session.

Build up your network of contacts

By coming along to the masterclasses, you’ll not only hone your skills, but you’ll also get the chance to meet like-minded people and build up a network.

Each class will last about two hours. You’ll get more out of it if you come along in person, but, if that’s not possible, we can email you a link to highlights videos and supporting material afterwards.
