Centre of Excellence Funding Help
The Centre of Excellence is the training, research and development hub for voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Stockton-on-Tees.
At Catalyst we know that sourcing funding for your organisation’s activities is difficult in today’s economic climate. That’s why we offer a one-to-one service to help you find new places to apply for funding.
With the help of Idox Grantfinder we can produce a report of possible funding opportunities open in our local area that may help you with your funding needs.
What do I need to do?
Get in touch and book at one-to-one appointment with Anna Jackson. Appointments are an informal chat to discuss your activities, your organisation and your funding needs. The only thing you will need to bring is knowledge of your organisation and what you need from Catalyst. We often use our appointments as ways of signposting you to other services that you may find useful, and we like to learn more about your organisations as well. So if you have any leaflets or initiatives you want to let Catalyst know about, bring that information in too!
What will I get?
Catalyst will produce a report with details of all the open funding opportunities that fit the criteria of your needs and provide a link for you to download them. We will also provide access to any other services that we have that might be beneficial, including governance support, networking opportunities and bid writing help.
