The Art of Grant Fundraising

Leadership and Team Management Training Course

In a climate with ever decreasing budgets, schools and VCSE organisations need to think more creatively about alternative sources of income. However, writing funding applications can seem a bit daunting to those who are not used to it. Rebecca will give you advice on where to find funders, top tips for success, and so much more. She will break writing funding applications into bite-sized chunks so that you feel more comfortable and confident to write your next bid.
