Understanding and meeting the expectations of funders can appear daunting. This online training event therefore aims to demystify the process of applying for support for projects in the place of worship sector. The session will help enable volunteers and employees to improve their application writing skills by explaining what information needs to be provided to funders.

This informal event will look at projects from first principles to submitted documents. The session will introduce some of the tools and techniques needed to plan, write and present a funding application. Drawing on his time working for the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Owen will discuss what makes a “good” project bid. Explaining an outcomes-based approach to assessment, Owen will also explore some of the “dos” and “don’ts” of the fundraising world.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Developing confidence in planning, writing and presenting applications
