Bid Writing



When you book your place you will receive a registration notification email within a couple of minutes. This email contains the Zoom login details you will need at the bottom. If the participant is a colleague please forward the login details to them. This email acts as your receipt for accounts purposes. If you do not receive this email please check your spam folder. If still nothing please phone 01133 280988 and leave a message quoting the booking email address plus an alternative email address to which we can resend the email.


Do you know the most common reasons for rejection? Are you gathering the right evidence? Are you making the right arguments? Are you using the right terminology? Are your numbers right? Are you learning from rejections? Are you assembling the right documents? Do you know how to create a clear and concise standard funding bid?

Are you communicating with people or just excluding them? Do you know your own organisation well enough? Are you thinking through your projects carefully enough? Do you know enough about your competitors? Are you answering the questions funders will ask themselves about your application? Are you submitting applications correctly?


Staff members, volunteers, trustees or board members of charities, schools, not for profits or public sector organisations who intend to submit grant funding applications to charitable grant making trusts and foundations. People who provide advice to these organisations are also welcome.


The workshop consists of talk, questions and answers. There are no power points or audio visuals used. Participants receive full notes and sample bids by email after the workshop. All places must be booked through the online booking system using a debit card, credit card or paypal. We do not issue invoices or accept bank or cheque payments. If you do not have a payment card from your organisation please use a personal one and claim reimbursement using the registration notification email as proof of purchase.
