John has been supporting a London client – helping their team of 4 fundraisers develop their skills – through reviewing their draft funding applications and sharoing an assessment with them of the areas that can be strengthened. So far this has helped them to successes with a Sport England grant of £11,500 (for dance and movement with girls) and £30,000 from the Garfield Weston Foundation (for running costs). The Director said “I want to thank you for your input into our applications…It was clearly a good investment on our part! And we are obviously working with the right professional!” This work is part of a process where John identifies the issues arsing from these reviews and will turn these into a training session or two.
