Grant writing support

Writing a successful grant can be hard work and take time. It is very important to understand and communicate how you will develop your project, so please see Business & Project Development Support before writing a grant application..

Some businesses offer paid services to write grants, however you are the best person to articulate your project, and this is best done with clear language. Think about who, what, where, why, when and how – its as simple as that.
