In response to popular demand, Bridge Renewal Trust in partnership with experienced funding professional Jane Sterland, are launching intensive Funding Lab course held one evening a week over 5 weeks, at the end of which participants will have completed an Awards for All funding application ready for submission.
This in-depth course will provide detailed guidance and one to one support and will be suitable for organisations that may never have made a small grants application before or else have struggled to be successful so far.
It will focus on the Big Lottery Fund’s Awards for All funding scheme which offers grants of between £300-£10,000 for a one year project.
The course will:
· Provide support in developing project ideas
· Go through the application form in detail
· Give guidance on avoiding early rejection
· Provide advice on how to best present your project
· Give guidance on defining need and showing the difference your project will make
· Provide support to complete all sections of the form during the course
The course will include presentations, group work, individual work on applications and one to one support.
Starting on 18 May 2017, the course will run every Thursday from 4-7pm for 5 weeks.
Course cost: £150
Venue: Chestnuts Community Centre, 280 St Ann’s Road, N15 5BN
