"Would recommend to anyone interested in attempting to fill applications as it demystifies the process. Breaks it down into bite size chunks."

The current funding climate requires third sector organisations to be vigilant and prepared in order to sustain themselves financially. Economic changes 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.
