“I am so pleased with my experience of just one of the services Lincolnshire CVS provide. They steered us through the somewhat lengthy procedure of applying for funding, with patience and understanding. As we are all senior citizens it was all a bit daunting but Lincolnshire’s CVS Development Officer kept us focused and hopeful. This truly is an invaluable service”Gillian Goulder
“I was very sceptical because other Gedney Dyke Village Hall committee members had been unsuccessful with funding applications previously.
“We attended LCVS meetings and the advice helped me to understand exactly what the funders were looking for to meet the criteria for a successful funding application, which certainly paid off.”Angela Halsall
“LCVS is the link between the small community group and the wider funding opportunities available.
“Every step of the way I rang LCVS. They advised on funding opportunities and supported me in writing applications. When I got turned down, they were there to say ‘don’t worry, that was just plan A, let’s try this instead.”
