Where projects are collaborative we help you identify external funding opportunities. There are many types of funding opportunities available and we can help you identify which is the most suitable for your project. We help you secure funding by getting to know you and your business and writing the funding application on your behalf, articulating what funders are looking for and ensuring your project meets their criteria.
