What is the course about?

It can be hard to get funding for your group, and even small bids present a challenge if you aren’t sure of the right approach. This workshop will take you through the basics, from identifying the right opportunity to receiving a grant.

Here are some testimonials from people who have taken the course:

  • 'I haven’t done bid writing before in my role, but now I feel confident and have the tools to do so. The most useful part was knowing how a funder thinks.'
  • 'Thanks to this course, I’m going to take time to consider questions and the associated hidden questions in a funding bid.'
  • 'The session couldn’t have been improved at all.'

What will you learn?

  • Identifying the right grant funding source for your group.
  • Preparing to apply.
  • Writing a good bid.
  • Managing your fundraising.

Who is this course for: People who are either new to bidwriting or who have done a little and would like additional skills.

What else do you need to know? You need to bring some very basic information about your group - what sort of group you are, and roughly what you need to fundraise for.
