Grant Applications


There is a skill to filling in grant applications and our consultancy can offer advice as well as completing forms on your behalf. My most recent successful application has netted £10,000 for a County Londonderry project which includes a history conference and associated programmes.


Dr. David Hume has over 25 years’ experience in successfully applying for grant funding for his local community and these skills can be utilised for your group. It is impossible to guarantee success, of course, but we can assuredly state that at the end of the process you will have a strong grant application.


Over the years David has successfully applied for and accessed over half a million pounds of grant funding for his local community group.


Our work on grant applications typically involves;


  • A meeting with your group or its officers to discuss your aims and aspirations for a grant
  • A presentation to the group on the basis of application and how to make your grant application as strong as possible
  • Working on the actual grant form for the group to submission stage
