Applying for Small Grants

Voluntary Action Leeds

We will identify how best to approach a range of funders e.g.  local council and national lottery pots, chartable trusts and one-off funders, ensuring eligibility. We will discuss what funders look for in a successful application looking at key questions about your organisation, the need/idea for your activities, project outline, outcomes for beneficiaries, community involvement/lead, budget and so on.  We will assess some example questions and answers. 

We can offer you support by e-mail following the course to give you feedback on your draft bids.


Learning Outcomes

  • Check your eligibility    
  • Be aware of what funders want to know about your group and project/activity
