Funding Mentor

Do you feel like arts funding is always slightly out of reach and are unsure where to start?

Have you applied for funding before and been unsuccessful?

Would you like to have the skills and confidence to apply for funding?

I have submitted loads of funding applications for my projects and mentored artists and creative companies to submit successful applications.

Each funding support programme is tailored to you. Our first chat will focus on exploring your needs and concerns so that I can design a programme which starts with what you know and tackles your worries head on.

Funding Support Packages

I no longer offer a bid writing service. I prefer to support organisations and artists to build the confidence and skills to become fundraisers. As the project lead, I think that you are the best person to write passionately about your project.

Work with me to understand the funding process, develop your ideas, and plan and increase your chances of securing funding for your project, now and in the future.

If you need some space to think or help defining your next steps visit my Coach & Mentor page to book a 1 hour "Power Hour" session.
