Services Grant Writing
Competing for funding has never been more challenging, and a well-written application can give you the edge. I’ve been helping small charities and community groups with their grant applications for a while now, and I absolutely love it.
I have a Certificate of Fundraising Management from the Institute of Fundraising, which means I’ve had thorough training in all aspects of fundraising from volunteer management to event planning. It’s grant writing that I love the most.
You may have some idea where you’re going to ask for money, or you may just have a great idea. Either way, I can help. I have experience at coming up with fundraising strategies and writing grant applications for a range of charities and social enterprises.
My rates for fundraising work are lower than my commercial rates. That’s not because you get any less skill or commitment from me. It’s just my way of wanting to find a balance between what I know I’m worth, and what I feel I can ask from a non-profit from an ethical perspective.
Whether you want someone to come in and take over, or a knowledgable friend to help you find your feet, together we can come up with a way to help your organisation meet its funding goals.

“I have worked with Sarah since 2005 and she was a wonderful supporter of The Healing Clinic since that time. She particularly helped me with fundraising efforts in the last few years. She is thorough and consistent with her advice and writes extremely well in whatever genre she is working. I would not hesitate to employ her again at any time.”
“Sarah did excellent work. She was efficient & courteous and I will certainly have no hesitation in recommending.”
