Bid Writing Service

Active Derbyshire has launched a new Bid Writing service. This is an exciting new offer, to provide further support in addition to the free services provided by Derbyshire Sport's Funding Development Officer, detailed above.

Active Derbyshire has identified a number of experienced, high quality, local bid writers who can support organisations which need more help with project development and drafting grant application forms. The team can provide support with applications to funds such as Sport England's open funds including the Small Grants programme. There are also bid writers with wider experience beyond sport, such as the Big Lottery's Awards for All and Reaching Communities programmes.

There is a charge for the bid writing service. The cost will depend on the size of the project. The bid writing service is open to organisations in Derbyshire, the East Midlands and across England, and is managed by Active Derbyshire.

If you would like us to arrange a quotation, please complete and submit the Bid Writing Service enquiry form.
