A One-Day Training Course
Including a handbook published by Youth Dance England and Foundation for Community Dance

In this time of austerity the ability to secure funding from a wide range of sources is crucial. Originally devised by Youth Dance England, this course has been updated and refreshed by Dance Up for 2013. 

The training course aims to give you the skills to take advantage of a range of funding opportunities by developing effective funding applications.  It will be delivered by Hannah Osmond, an experienced freelance arts manager and fundraiser. 
The day will focus on:

  • Getting to know your project
  • Writing a fundraising application
  • Understanding funders
