Tips for Successful Applications

Tips for Successful Applications

Many funding applications fail for a whole range of reasons. Funders get hundreds and sometimes thousands of applications for funding streams but are only able to provide funding to a very small percentage of those so it is really important to make your funding application stand out.

You can download this guide for ‘Writing a Good Funding Bid.

You can also download the guide to ‘Common Reasons Why Bids Fail.

Lots of funders and organisations offer tips on how to complete an application and common mistakes that people make. When making an application it is worth checking the funder’s website to see if they offer any tips.

There are lots of tips on the web. Search words like “good funding bid” or “Why bids fail”.

Hounslow Voluntary Sector Support Service is available locally to help support Hounslow groups through the application process and give comments on draft applications.
