Bid Writing : The Basics
This workshop provides practical tips to enhance the standard and likely success rate of your funding applications. These tips can be used just as readily in bids for small grants without any application form as with applications to the biggest funders such as Comic Relief or The Big Lottery Fund. With a maximum of 10 participants there will be plenty of time to ask questions or contribute to the discussions. The trainer for this workshop will be Ian Benson.
