Your bid’s in safe hands
Since 2005 as a bid writer I’ve been helping charities and social enterprises across the UK improve their bid and tender quality. By using my skills they’ve won millions of pounds in grant and contract funding from funders such as traditional charitable trusts, local authorties, and Innovate UK and Govtech funds.
My overall success rate is 72%, with a peak rate of winning 18 out of 19 bids for my longest running client.
