Aid Works is a member of the quickly growing South Yorkshire International Development Network (SYIDN), a coordination mechanism for local aid organisations. The network provides us with an opportunity to learn from each other, share events and news, and to give us a stronger, collective voice.

Aid Works hosted the most recent meeting, which featured an informative presentation from Rachel Cornish of the Evan Cornish Foundation. The foundation is really unique in its approach to selecting projects, funding cutting edge activities which are unlikely to be funded elsewhere. Rachel gave the network lots of useful tips about what donors are looking for from proposals. Subscribe to our newsletter (using the form at the right hand side of this page), where we’ll be sharing the best of her tips with our readers.

The SYIDN will be launching its website soon. In the meantime, if you are interested in joining the network’s mailing list, please email us at info@aidworks.org.uk.
