How can I help you?

My expertise is winning funding by applying for grants from trusts, foundations, BBC Children in Need and the National Lottery for charities and not-for-profit organisations.

I am also experienced in applying to and winning contracts from local and national government; managing and writing large, complex bids as well as smaller ones.

What does Vision Mission do?

  • Help you develop your bidding strategy
  • Search for suitable funding opportunities
  • Help develop your offer and explain your organisation’s journey of change or, put simply, tell the story of how you make a difference and why you should be supported
  • Manage the bidding process making sure your application is complete, of high quality and submitted to deadline
  • Manage the online portals
  • Write the response to the funder’s questions making sure your answers address what is important to them (helping the funder understand why you can meet their aims and goals)
  • Follow up submissions, making sure any subsequent questions asked by the funder are addressed

In short, I can help you and your team develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence to manage your own bidding strategy and applications – and support you until you’re ready to do so.

I’m happy to do that face-to-face on Zoom or Skype etc. We can find out whether or not we would suit each other. Working on bids can be intense and it helps if you know your bid writer and conversely if the bid writer knows and understands your goals. Contact me using the form or by using the email shown below.
