Grants Consulting

Helping you strengthen your grants program


Consulting Services

The Grants Hub consultants are specialists in finding and applying for grants.

We love helping organisations with their Grants Program, giving them the best chance of grant success. We take the time to understand our clients' needs carefully, analysing where they are right now, and where they want to be in the future.

Many clients tell us that they love working with one organisation that can help them with all their grant needs. As we get to know your organisation, we can send you funding opportunities as soon as they are announced. You can then get started on applications right away, giving you a valuable head-start. Our consulting clients call us a 'a one-stop-shop' for all things grants.

Our Consulting team can help organisations, government and businesses by:

  • Finding grants through our Grants Directory
  • Undertaking customised grants research
  • Developing customised Grants Calendars - outlining which grants you should apply for in which month
  • Editing grant application drafts prepared by your own internal staff/volunteers
  • Preparing grant applications from beginning to end
  • Helping develop and manage your Funding & Grants Program.

We can also assist with:

  • Program/project development
  • Budget development
  • Monitoring & Evaluation plans
  • Needs assessments (including statistics)
  • Project plans & Key Performance Indicators.
