FULL DAY MASTERCLASS - This workshop will equip delegates with everything they need to know about researching grant funders, applying for funding and practical grant writing techniques. All with the aim of enabling you to produce focused applications, maximise their success rate and win new funding for their organisation - ensuring greater financial sustainability.

The programme includes interactive exercises and group working, which encourage peer to peer and shared learning. Each delegate will receive a personalised learning manual which includes a comprehensive information pack, a workbook, and a range of supplementary information.

Delegates are welcome to bring along funding applications they are working on, or bids that have previously been submitted by their organisation, for use (if relevant) in the practical elements of the day.

We will also cover:
• Researching grant makers and understanding their priorities
• Getting a ‘foot in the door’ - top tips to maximise your success rate
• Writing your ‘Case for Support’ funding story/statement
• Improving your grant writing style
• Raising your profile & ‘selling’ to specialist grant funding markets
• Attracting grant makers, site visits, invitations and interviews
