Funding Fundamentals - this half day workshop and networking opportunity takes you through the key information funders need to understand your activities as well as taking a look at the current funding climate in an ever-competitive marketplace. It covers the common mistakes organisations make when submitting their proposals as well as providing some top tips to get your idea funding ready. We'll bust some commonly held myths about what funders are looking for as well as breaking down some of the barriers around need and outcomes. By the end of this session you will leave with an individualised project plan underway, a better understanding of what funders are looking for and, our ultimate goal, the confidence to have a go.
