About The Event

Ever wondered what grants might be available to help you grow your business and how to apply for them? If so, this workshop is for you.

About this Event
The workshop will cover:

  • • What is grant funding
  • • Difference between grants and other types of funding
  • • When applying for grant funding is a good idea
  • • Grant funding themes
  • • Eligible expenditure
  • • What grants are available locally for your business
  • • How to keep up to date on available grants
  • • How to write a winning grant application

Businesses will be able to gain a greater insight into what grants are available and how they can apply. The session will also look at ‘real’ grant application questions and how responses were formulated and drafted.

The workshop will be delivered by Rachel Fletcher (Managing Director) and Julia Fletcher (Management Consultant) of FCS Associates.

Both Rachel and Julia have extensive experience of writing winning grant applications for capital, skills and research grants. FCS also supports SME’s to identify relevant grants they can apply for across a variety of sectors including IT, healthcare, construction, business services and trade.

Attendees will also be able to have a ‘one to one’ discussion with either Julia/Rachel after the event to discuss their business growth plans and any specific grants that they are keen to bid for.
