How we can help:

  • Setting up your group – help with a constitution or other documents 
  • Searching for funding – detailed funding search for your work 
  • Writing your first funding bid – advice and examples of bids 
  • “Critical Friend” – reading over your bid before you submit it.  
  • Chance to meet funders - Funding events, networking and meeting funders.  

Before you bid: 

You will need a few things in place: 

  • A group of people with ideas. Funders tend to fund groups not individuals 
  • A bank account in the name of the group with two signatories 
  • A constitution (written rules of your group) – including a “dissolution clause” 
  • At least three people who will play the roles chair, treasurer and secretary
