It may help to ask some important questions about the skills within your organisation first:

  • Do you know what funding agencies to apply to?
  • Do you know if your organisation is eligible to apply for funding?
  • Have you got the skills to accurately match the project to often complicated funding criteria?
  • Do you fully understand what funders want to see on your application form?
  • Do you understand funding ‘jargon’ or know the latest ‘buzz’ words and ‘trigger’ phrases?
  • Do you know where to find the latest and most relevant statistics and supporting evidence?
  • From a practical point of view is this the best possible use of your valuable time and efforts or should you get the experts in to help?

If the answer to all of the above questions is a confident ‘YES’ then you may not need us and we sincerely wish you every success with your applications.

The best way to answer this question is to think very positively and ask “How much money can the experts help me raise”?

The generally accepted ratio for ‘outsourcing’ returns are in the region of £4 in income generated for every £1 that is invested. ICS consultants have a consistent average return that is in the region of £8 generated for every £1 of investment which is double the accepted ratio.
