Fund Your Project

Do you feel like arts funding is not really for you?

Perhaps you find it hard to know where to start?

Have you applied for funding before and been unsuccessful?

Would you like to secure funding to bring your dream project to life and learn new skills and build confidence which you will use again and again in the future?

Over 21 years, I have secured over £2 million to fund my projects and mentored 100s of artists and creative companies to submit successful applications which have enabled them to secure funding to make their ideas happen.

Funding Support Packages

My Funding Support Packages give you the tools and 1-2-1 advice to write successful applications and make that project that you’ve always wanted to do, happen.

Starting with a 1-hour coaching session, we explore where you are and identify any concerns. From there, we design a programme that supports you to get started (wherever you’re at).

Next, we agree a timeline and plan a series of Review & Feedback sessions. In each session I give practical feedback on your draft application and we work through anything you are finding hard.

Finally, you press the SUBMIT button, feeling happy that you’ve written an application that you can feel really proud of!

I specialise in support for Arts Council England funds, but can offer support and advice on a wide range of other funds.
