It is becoming increasingly important to be able to prove to funders that what you are doing or what you want to do is needed. Funders want to see their money put to good use and that generally means they want to see positive results happen as a result of their grants or funding. Being able to prove that there is a demand for your work and that there are measurable outcomes is therefore vitally important.

By the end of this course you will have:

  • Improved understanding of how to identify need
  • Increased understanding of how to write about need in application forms
  • Improved understanding  of defining outcomes
