EVENT ENDED – Funding Friday

For our first Funding Friday we will be joined by Director of consultancy firm Con Brio, Tom Northey.

Writing grant applications can feel daunting. However by identifying what the funder is really looking for, and having the tools to articulate concise responses, you may have the chance to secure significant resources and kick-start exciting new projects.

What will the session involve?

In this 30minute, interactive session,Tom will discuss the common elements of all grant applications and some effective approaches to describing your company and your work. We’ll look at some of the criteria and questions being asked by funders such as Innovate UK, and may also have time to discuss grants which participants are currently working on.

Who it’s for: Social enterprises/ Tech companies who intend to apply for social/health focused grants, but may have limited experience in doing so.

Preparation for session: If possible, bring a live application you’re working on, or a blank form for a grant you’re interested in, so we can discuss the trickiest questions!
