Finding funding for your project is becoming increasingly challenging; grant funds are often over- subscribed and the current economic climate and public sector cuts add to the difficulties when looking for funding.
This course will give you the opportunity to develop your group’s own funding strategy for your own environmental project.
This course will focus specifically on funding for environmental community
projects and will:
• Provide an overview of the different types of funding available, from
sponsorship to grants.
• Explain how to meet the requirements of the funding body by taking the role of a grant application assessor and understanding why some applications get funded and some don’t.
• Give you the opportunity to develop your group’s own funding strategy for your own environmental project and use this as a building block to continue theprocess back in your own communities.
Thanks to generous funding from the Tudor Trust we can offer these courses for only £50 for the first community volunteer booking on and £20 for every additional community volunteer booking from the same organisation. This price not only includes the training but also all meals and refreshments during your stay and one night’s accommodation in one of our en-suite bedrooms at Trafford Hall.
There is a small grant fund attached to this programme so after completing the course you will have the opportunity of applying for a grant of up to £500 to help your community project progress.
