Funding Surgeries

Due to popular demand Community Action Suffolk and Suffolk County Council’s External Funding team are teaming up to offer further pre-bookable opportunities for a 121 funding surgery.

These surgeries are open to voluntary, community and social enterprises who need help reviewing their finances as a result of the Covid-19 emergency.

These 1 to 1 surgeries will be delivered by telephone and can cover a range of topics related to:

  • Identifying appropriate funding opportunities
  • Carrying out bespoke grant searches
  • Assistance with developing a project idea into a bid
  • Support with writing your application
  • Ensuring your application meets the needs of the funder

The session will last a maximum of 1 hour, allowing time to discuss your project in a little more depth with one of our Officers. 

Please note that booking is essential and the events close for booking two days prior to the event running.  If you cannot find a time that fits in with your way of working please email to arrange an alternative time.
