Podcast: How to successfully apply to grant funders

Watch or listen to our first Beyond Funding podcast with Senior Grants Officer, Paul Playford
In the opening episode of our new podcast series, Beyond Funding, Alice Morris (Host) talks to Paul Playford (Senior Grants Officer) about how churches and Christian charities can find funding, the different grants programmes available and Paul’s top tips when completing an application. 
This is the first in a series of videos to come from Benefact Trust, where churches and Christian charities can get advice and guidance on applying for funding, as well as hearing from those who have been on the receiving end of grants and discussing key social issues with expert guests.
The first Beyond Funding podcast: ‘How To Successfully Apply to Grant Funders – Advice from a Funder’ is available on Youtube and Spotify.

Make sure that your application stands out from the crowd. That you make it very clear what your intentions are, the impact the application will have, and how you’ll measure that impact.
