Better Bid Writing

Make sense of bid writing at our one day workshop.

Social Entrepreneurs

At a time when the demand for funding is increasing and funding pots are diminishing, writing a successful bid has never been more important. Writing bids can take a huge amount of time, research and energy to get things right. Our Better Bid Writing one-day workshop will ensure that you are fully informed and able to make the most of your bid writing for your social enterprise.

What the day will cover

Our day will be split into two. The morning session will have a focus of identifying different funding options and honing which to approach.

This will include:

  • Budgeting – what information do you need to collect and how do you relay this
  • Understanding and providing evidence of need
  • Understanding outcomes, output and how to identify them for your project.

After lunch, we will switch our focus onto assessing bids and using this learning to develop better bid writing.

This will include:

  • Assessing examples – we would like to invite you to submit a bid that you are working on that the group can work on together!
  • Become an assessor – If you become responsible for the outcome of the bid, what are you looking for? How can this new viewpoint inform your own application?
