Grant Writing

What will we cover?

The session is aimed at helping you get better at researching and applying for grants –whether from social enterprises, private foundations, or HM Government.

We start by outlining the types of grants available and their pros and cons, before exploring how to use databases and carry out effective research.

We then help you develop a systematic approach to finding and identifying relevant funders in the third or public sector.

The group then considers the different kinds of grant options there are, before discussing which grants match your requirements and are worth applying for.

We also briefly look at how to get organizations ready for the application process, before sharing the key principles of effective grant writing. These include funder alignment, organisational mission, project design, and programme budgets

Although the session focuses on an overall strategy, rather than quick wins, to ensure lasting return, it does look at the impact of Covid-19 on grant awarding bodies. 

The session ends by looking at next steps and where to get more help.
