Event description

Description

As the public purse shrinks it is becoming increasingly difficult for charities, social enterprises and community groups to raise the funds required to develop and sustain their activities. It is, therefore, essential that any funding application that you make to grant and trust funders is well written and clearly articulates your plans. Although this training cannot guarantee a successful outcome, by making sure that you fully understand what is required of you and are properly prepared when developing your funding application, it will help you be a step ahead of the rest of the pack.

Our training will give you greater awareness of:

> the jargon and terminology used in funding applications
> the various stages of applying for funding
> how to become ‘funding ready’ as an organisation
> the various sources of funding available locally and nationally
> budget headings and costing of projects

And more confidence in:

> defining need, outcomes and outputs within a funding application
> writing various sections of a funding bid
>articulating a rounded project idea to potential funders
