This workshop is for people in from charities, voluntary & community organisations, faith group and social enterprises in Barking and Dagenham who have experience of writing bids and application forms.
Research shows that over a third of applications fail because they do not meet the funders’ basic criteria. Many more fail because applicants do not understand the real interests of funders, how they work, and what they actually fund.
Many applicants have a blunderbuss approach, shooting off as many applications as they can in the hope that one or two are successful. By applying an understanding of a funder you will make better judgements as to whether you should apply.
This workshop is about going beyond the funders basic criteria and looks at ways in which an applicant can assess the interests and practice of funders. It looks at where you can look for information and what you should be looking for.
The workshop will enable you to:
Be clear about what you should be looking for when assessing a funder
Fully research what funders are interested in funding
Make better judgements about which funders to apply, or not to apply to
Save time by avoiding writing speculative applications that have little chance of success
