Applying for grant funding from Trusts, Foundations, Local Authorities and other Funding Bodies is usually time consuming, can be stressful and commands high levels of commitment.
In addition, many organisations do not have the correct policies in place; keep poor accounts; have little or no primary evidence of what they deliver (e.g. surveys, consultations, reports etc.) and aren’t ready to apply for funding.
We know how severe a lack of funding can be
We understand what it’s like to be faced with an increased need for your services, that you cannot meet due to financial limitations. In some cases, we know that your organisations very existence is at risk due to a lack of funding.
