Grant Application Workshop

Grant Application Workshop

This is a free workshop aimed at volunteers who are new to fundraising. The workshop will offer an introduction to structuring and writing funding applications for grants and trusts (national and local).

Its aim is to equip volunteers with the knowledge and skills needed to start preparing funding applications on behalf of voluntary or community organisations. It is also suitable for volunteers who want to develop their fundraising experience, to improve their employability within the voluntary sector.

The workshop will be delivered via zoom and will take place over 2 two hour sessions a week apart.

Session 1 (of 2) – Tuesday 1 December 10am to 12 noon

The first session will cover the following:
• telling your charity’s story
• finding the appropriate funder for the project

Session 2 (of 2) – Tuesday 8 December 10am to 12 noon

The second session will cover the following:
• researching the need
• application structure
• impact measurement

The training provider is Suzie Tobin from Voluntary Support North Surrey. Suzie has a wealth of experience in applying for funding and in supporting local organisations to access funds. This course was previously run in Redhill in January 2020 and received excellent feedback from all participants.

Excellent, well organised and focused session. A lot of information shared and participants encouraged to ask questions.
