Can you clearly link your aims, outcomes and impact in your funding applications?

Posted by Bianca

This interactive training session will help you to clearly link your aimsoutcomes and activities in your applications.

Many major funders now require you to do this, and if you’re not, or not doing it well, it could affect your chances of success.

In this session you will explore a systematic approach to planning aims, outcomes and impact in your funding applications.

This session will help you:

• Describe your project in terms of what need or needs your project will tackle
• Distinguish between aims, outcomes, indicators and activities and suggest clear examples for each one
• Apply an aim, outcome and indicator for a project that relates back to the need for the project
• Apply the use of the planning triangle to a project.

This session is aimed at anyone currently working on, or planning, a funding application.

Date: Wednesday 18th March 2020
