  • Understanding and meeting eligibility criteria (interpreting any jargon) and what funders are really looking for.
  • Building the case for why your council project merits funding.

Current sources of grants covered will include: –

  • National Lottery distributors (such as the Community Fund)

  • Local and county grants
  • Trusts and Foundations
