The current funding climate requires third sector organisations to be vigilant and prepared in order to sustain themselves financially. Economic changes over the last five years have resulted in a more highly competitive grants market meaning bids must be well developed and executed, however big or small. This practical course takes a holistic approach to grant funding based on key principles, whilst allowing you to practise and assess your skills with peers. There are also options for having your learning accredited with Agored Cymru– get in touch to find out more.
