MVA can offer a capped 3 hours of free support for Funding as part of our infrastructure contract with Medway Council. This support takes the form of supported signposting, pointing in the right direction of where to search, knowing what’s available – resources, templates etc. This can be delivered in one session or it can be spread out across a period of time, where we catch up periodically to see where you are at and to ascertain if you need further signposting, or for MVA to be a sounding board. We cannot give you legal advice as part of this support nor can we complete things for you like applications.
It's really up to you to decide what support you need, how you want to receive it and then for MVA to see if that fits in with our availability and capacity, we then agree a plan forward. Contact us if you would like to book a free one-to-one support appointment.
We also have a monthly Funding & Marketing Club that is currently free to join for members, you are very welcome to join and it may reduce the amount of 1:1 support you may need for Funding & Marketing.
In the meantime, you can find below information about resources that can help to increase and assist to generate income for your organisation. For example, the resources listed are helpful newsletters that list funding opportunities, information about contracts and bids and helpful funding databases.
