Tees Valley Bounce Back – Case Study
The CFTV Bounce Back Funding Programme was delivered with financial experts, Edale and has helped several creative businesses across the Tees Valley with harnessing financial resources and support following the impact of Covid-19. Across four weekly masterclasses and individual mentoring sessions, participants were equipped with the know-how on applying for funding and grants to get back on track.
Tees Valley Arts is a local charity that uses the arts to create social change that joined the programme to help it move out of an emergency survival mode as a result of the pandemic.
Having recently moved to new premises and operating a public-facing gallery and potential commercial space for the first time, the charity utilised the programme to diversify funding opportunities and strengthen its case for support.
Executive Director, James Beighton described the programme as “Very helpful to encounter different approaches to developing and explaining business models and equally valuable to be part of a cohort of similarly sized organisations who would share challenges and solutions.”
