Master Class in Grant Applications

Ian will be presenting his Master Class "Writing Grant Applications for Heritage Building Projects" for Sefton CVS on Thursday, October 12th at 1.00pm. This three-hour workshop looks at successful grant applications (all anonymised) from the real world to distill some key points to note when applying for funding. Participants are invited to join in a number of exercises in order to develop their skills and there is an opportunity to discuss your project and ask questions at the end. All bookings need to be made through Sefton CVS at seftoncvs.org.uk/events/training/.
