Could your organisation benefit from free fundraising consultancy support or advice on how to secure funding from trusts and foundations during and post-COVID 19 world? Aston-Mansfield has managed to secure some funding (City Bridge Trust) to offer you access to professional consultants to help Newham groups to help develop, shape, review and write funding bids to a range of funders. This support will be available until the funding runs out in August 2021. 

Successful organisations will get access to tailored advice and support from experienced and skilled fundraising professionals, totally free of charge. Whether you are seeking advice on how to develop a fundable service, how to create a fundable application, or advice on improving an existing application that you want to submit, this consultancy programme can help. 

Charities, community groups and not-for-profits will also benefit from the expertise of the Fitter Finance team and are encouraged to apply. The consultancy period will begin in W/c 4th January 2021 and last until the funding is gone. 

Consultants will meet with you to discuss the challenges facing your organisation and the project you would like to get funded to understand your goals. They will then help you to achieve this. All consultants have years of experience and knowledge and will be supported by the Fitter Finance staff with extensive charity and social enterprise consultancy experience. 

To apply, please complete the online expression of interest form below. 

By submitting this application, you agree to the following points if your application is successful: 

1. Meet the consultants at least twice via a virtual platform (once at the start and once at the end of the consultancy period) and be contactable for the duration. 

2. Provide feedback on your experience via a formal evaluation. 

3. Provide information about the longer-term outcomes for your Charity/social enterprise or community group six months after the project is complete.
