Session 1:

  • The application process
  • Training needs identification
  • Structured networking

Session 2:

Programme and Project Grid and Cost Recovery Workshop | 11am to 11.55am

Whatever stage or complexity your organisation is at, you can benefit from this process. In this session, you will:

  • Work to a template to help clarify your product and service offer. This tool can support with internal resource allocation, application writing, and developing your communications and brand positioning
  • Learn about cost recovery principles - the important difference between cost, price and value that will help you make the strongest case to funders to cover your true costs so that you can build your reserves and reinvest in your growth

Final 5 minutes: AOB and agenda setting.

At the session you will be invited to share information about your organisations' existing and desired projects in writing using our 'Picture the Pathway' interactive wall diagram and to add your listing to the GLA's service mapping tool.
