“Evolve Network’s funding webinar helped me to focus on outcomes for the community on a grant application I was working on. Being creative and using case studies enabled us to receive the grant and the webinar encouraged to highlight the social need of the project, and that was key in receiving the funding, I’m sure.” Ian Davie, Business Development Manager Key Employment
