Fit for Funding – Rhondda, Cynon and Taff Ely (3 Events) – July 19th, 20th & 21st

Do you have a great project idea, but can’t quite seem to find success when applying for grant funding?

Quite often it’s not that your project idea isn’t a good idea, there are just some common mistakes that people make when applying for funding.

Join us for a masterclass on what those common mistakes are and how you can put them right. Joining us on the day will also be some key funders. You will be welcome to talk through your project ideas to start planning your future success.
