Funding applications

Many larger organisations now employ their own Business Development Managers or indeed, teams of bidwriters, which makes it difficult for smaller organisations, where writing funding applications has to be juggled with other management duties. Writing bids can be very time consuming, working to the differing requirements of commissioning and grant giving bodies often against tight deadlines.

We can level the playing field with the big players, giving you access to professional bid writing. We have many years’ experience of writing funding applications, including
almost 4 years of consultancy. We can write well crafted bids which answers the questions set and score high marks against evaluation criteria.

Our experience spans a wide range of funding sources including central and local government tenders and competitions, grant giving trusts and different varieties of European funding. This includes different government departments and agencies such a the Department of Justice, NOMS, DCLG and DWP, to name but a few.

We have extensive experience of Local Government and it’s tendering procedures and requirements. We can also help organisations become ‘contract ready’ so as to increase their scores when completing tenders.

We have also had the opportunity to apply for different funds supporting the development of social investment strategies including Big Potential, The Investment and Contract Readiness Fund and Community Assets and Services Grants.
