Free funding workshops for East Devon

Published on 10th June 2022

Are you part of an East Devon voluntary, community or social enterprise group? Do you need help with applying for grants? If so, Devon Communities Together are working with East Devon District Council to run two FREE workshops that could help you.

These ‘Writing Winning Funding Applications’ workshops will cover how to write applications to grant providers which are eligible, to the point, comprehensive, engaging and more likely to be successful.

Each workshop will cover the same material, so you only need attend one or the other. Both events are only for groups based in East Devon. They will be:

These workshops are free through a grant from East Devon District Council and are also supported by New Start Devon Enterprise Coaching, a European funded project of Devon Communities Together.

Cllr Dan Ledger, East Devon District Council’s portfolio holder for Homes and Communities said: “Grant funding is becoming an almost essential tool for the continual delivery of our vital community, voluntary and social enterprise sector across East Devon. These workshops will give groups the necessary tools to boost their chances of success in applying for grants and hopefully ensure future delivery of these groups for years to come."

The workshops will be facilitated by Hannah Reynolds, Project Manager for Devon Communities Together, who has a background as a National Lottery Grants Officer and funding adviser.
