Common Thread Gathering - Focus on Fundraising

Peter Humphreys met with other charitable organisations and the Potential Trust and The Comino Foundation in 2004 to discuss long term relationships with funding groups and trusts. "It was suggested that a number of educational organisations should meet together with representatives of funding organisations (eg Esmee Fairbairn, Gulbenkian and others) to discuss the long-term future of where learning and education need to go, with a view to determining the general direction of funding, rather than viewing funding merely on a project by project basis. A two day meeting has now been set up for October, Peter will attend again on behalf of Personalised Education Now.
