Writing a Funding Application

This practical Working Space event lead by Briana Pegado will take you through the process of writing successful funding applications. It aims to cover all aspects of structuring your application and offer top tips and advice to ensure that your submissions have every chance of success.

The two hour sessions will include:

  • a breakdown of how to write a good funding application – review the different components from the introduction, core message, budget, monitoring and evaluation, and impact
  • how to talk about your work and your practice with confidence
  • Developing a values compass, that allows people to better understand their own values in the context of funding
