The Percy Hedley Foundation provides a wide range of high quality, specialist and personalised care and education support to disabled people and their families.
What we did:
CML Consultants worked with the Employment Project Officer, who had never before submitted a grant funding bid, to submit a small bid to gain funding for media equipment for the students. There was no application form, no standard format and no guidance for the bid. It was, literally, starting with a blank sheet of paper.
The work was conducted via email and involved a review of the original bid written by the client. CML made constructive recommendations about how to improve the bid. The client re-wrote the bid… and got the money! By doing this, she also gained the confidence to join the fundraising committee for a local youth organisation!
“Much time was dedicated by Catherine, which was extremely supportive during the process of applying for funds. This has given me a great framework that I can use for other bids.“Employment Project Officer, The Percy Hedley Foundation
