Tottenham Hotspur Foundation | Specialist Support

Funding Workshops

Tottenham Hotspur Foundation have an innovative programme for Enfield groups only which provides specialist support to participate in & develop your service activities and your sustainability. The programme offers support until 2020, including

* hands-on support with your community activities;

* free skills development for your staff and volunteers, from selected trainers / coaches; and

* help with funding for equipment.

This programme is available to all local community groups, not only for groups providing sports activities.

Workshops with Frank Kain from the Foundation and Kishore Kanani from EVA will be held where you can share your organisational needs and you can receive direct support on the day to complete an application to Tottenham Hotspur Foundation's scheme.

Dates for the workshops will be arranged according to demand.


Message Kishore, via our Contact Us page, if you would like to know more, if you would like to attend a workshop or to receive support to complete an application to the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.

From time to time (2-4 times a year) EVA is able to organise Meet The Funder sessions with some of the main funders for voluntary and community organisations. EVA will keep you informed about Meet the Funder sessions if you join our email list for EVANEWS.


EVA is also able to provide opportunities to meet with funders on a one-to one basis or in a small workshop setting - see below.
