Get Grants have developed an Online Bid Writing in Sports & Physical Activity Workshop in response to request for Fundraising support from local clubs and sports organisation.
The Workshop is a two-hour online session aimed at organisations who are delivering sports and physical activity projects who are interested in growing their grant fundraising confidence and increasing their income through grant funding.

- Ensure their organisation has the right things in place to have fundraising success;
- Discover how to find funding opportunities and decide which funds are right for them;
- Learn tactics for arguing the need for their project;
- Create a grant-fundraising action plan.
The Workshop is open and conversational, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
