Grant Writing for Charities and CICs 

We have over 20 years experience of writing funding applications and grant applications for charities and CICs.

We are here to help you think outside the box, ensure your story and message is clearly explained and that your need is presented in the right way.

Using our analytical capabilities and skills we prepare the grant applications, collate evidence and manage the application or tender process.

We ensure that all boxes are ticked, the correct information is supplied and submitted to meet the funder’s requirements and deadlines.

If you need assistance identifying the right funding, creating a strategy, drafting the applications and understanding the process of funding, then please get in touch through

Our clients include: Kind at Heart CIC, Let’s Get Moving CIC, Whirlow Hall Farm Trust, Parson Cross Community Development Forum, St Luke’s Hospice, Dearne Valley Personal Development Centre, Ant Kids Charity, Sheffield Cathedral, ExtraCare Charitable Trust, Helen’s Trust and Sheffield Half Marathon Committee.

Focused on developing long term relationships with our clients.

    Parson Cross Community Development Forum
    Sheffield, South Yorkshire

    Lucinda has been fantastic to work alongside us on funding bids. She has taken the time to get to know our Charity’s aims and objectives, gaining a real insight ​and knowledge of what the mission and needs of our Charity is. She has supported us through the process of applying for grants and tenders and helped us secure two Reaching Communities Big Lottery Funds worth £500,000 in 2018 and £300,000 in 2024!

    We still work with Lucinda and will continue to do so in the future, as her understanding and extensive knowledge about funders is second to none. Lucinda has an excellent understanding of the voluntary sector and has helped us to explore and develop new projects. Through our partnership working our Charity is now in a positive position thanks to the support of Lucinda.”
