Finding grants and funding for your charity or social enterprise

February 17 @ 10:00 - 12:30

Finding grants and funding for your charity and social enterprise

Do you struggle to find funding for your projects?

Maybe you don’t know where to start looking for sources of funding. Perhaps you’ve been unsuccessful with past funding applications and you don’t know why. Or maybe you want to brush up on your skills.

In this interactive session, arts & charity consultant and coach, Emma Collins, will explore what funders are really looking for, how to make your application stand out, and how to make a convincing case for support to secure your funds during this challenging time.

Emma has supported people to raise over £3 million in grants and funding awards since 2017. In this workshop she will help you to give your application the best chance of success.


• Finding appropriate funds

• The project outline – what are you really asking for?

• The case for support – and what’s the best way to get it?

• Impact – outputs and outcomes

• Budget

• What to do, and what not to!

This workshop is via Zoom and will be a mix of presentation, group work, and individual reflection

“Emma was great, she created a safe space in which to learn and ask questions. She made the session interactive and provided genuinely useful resources.”

“Emma was brilliant. She explained in an easy to understand way, I have learnt a great deal today and am feeling much more confident about grant applications/fundraising.”
