Funding

 

Support with funding

  • developing realistic funding plans and strategies
  •  turning ideas into fully formed plans ready to present to a funder
  • developing applications and bids
  • developing your skills in seeking and applying for funding


I have over twenty-five years experience of successfully fundraising from charitable trusts, the Lottery and the public sector and of helping others to develop their skills in writing successful plans, applications and bids.

In 2016-17 I supported several local voluntary sector service providers to develop applications and bids to Charitable Trusts, Lottery and public sector service tenders. Amounts raised this year range from £1,000 - £2.1 million and total £3.2 million .

There are still some free resources out there to help you find potential funders and successfully apply. In South Yorkshire the South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau can help and your local CVS might be a good starting point.
