Who should attend this course?

This half-day course is designed for those working in the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector in Kent (excluding Medway).

Course content

This course will examine the issues around bidding for contracts from statutory funders with a view to helping organisations decide whether this type of funding is right for them. The course will examine the funding context, look at the significant legal and practical differences between grants and contracts, help organisations to understand what they need to have in place to be ready for the contract culture and some 'dos and dont's' when it comes to writing bids.
