About the role
Seeking an expert to facilitate a grant writing boot camp session
The Genetic Support Network of Victoria is looking for a facilitator and expert to lead a half day ‘grant writing boot Camp’ workshop to assist genetic and rare disease support groups with their understanding and ability to identify and write successful grants. Many of these support groups have no funding, are lacking the broader skills and resources to approach grant writing and are nervous to do so. We aim to support them and provide the best and basic elements they would need to know to overcome grant writing fear and phobia.
We are looking to cover:
- Where to find grants
- Solidifying project scope and ideas
- Writing the 50-word grab
- Understanding the grant making cycle
- Working through a grant application from login to submission
- How to do a budget (for a grant application)
- Dealing with the ‘evaluation’ and ‘project sustainability’ questions
The session is also designed to also encourage a co-opted approach to grants – where support groups may consider combining their efforts, collaboration and applying for joint grants to increase capacity and success in the genetic support sector.
The Genetic Support Network of Victoria supports the genetics community in Victoria, but increasingly we are asked to deliver support in areas relating to the business aspects of running a support group such as governance, policy development, fund raising and more and more grant writing. NDIS ILC and a range of condition specific and community grants are a target for the support groups we work with and we are keen to build their knowledge, skills and capacity to generate outcomes that empower them and the communities they support.
