Help for those submitting a Grant Application.

To assist any organisations with their grant application, BVSC and BCC will be hosting regular 30 minute virtual surgeries open to all grant applicants to answer any questions or concerns that may arise. These can be accessed online or, if you prefer, in person at BCC's Lifford House in Stirchley, or BVSC's office by Snowhill Station. Organisations that wish to attend these surgeries can book a slot by following this link.

BVSC and BCC are committed to supporting organisations who wish to apply for the P&C Grants Programme. We invite prospective applicants to take part in this online workshop where we will work through the opportunity, the application and top tips to make your application as strong as possible. This sessions will be led by Tony Carr of 4frontpartners who delivers a weekly one-hour webinar for BVSC members looking at different aspects of business development and submitting funding applications. He will bring this expertise into the room and talk about strong applications in general and make specific reference to the P&C form.
