As part of the Transforming Local Infrastructure Programme in Lincolnshire, some members of Involving Lincs have come together to look at the funding advice services offered by partners across Lincolnshire. We have worked together to develop a joint delivery model which aims to centralise information, making it easier for groups and individuals seeking funding or funding advice to identify where they can access support.
This work has resulted in the development of the Funding Advice Services area of the Involving Lincs website as a central gateway to the funding advice services available throughout the county.
As a part of this work we have developed the Involving Lincs Funding Advice Services Key Principles.

Are you ready to apply for funding?
We have put together a Funding Health Check and a Getting Started Checklist to give you an overview of the type of questions a funder will ask you and to help you decide whether you are ready to apply. The research you do as part of your project development will help you gather answers, and there is lots of help available at every step of the way. You can download these documents using the links below.
What are the Key Principles?
Involving Lincs has developed a set of key principles which define the standards of funding advice services across organisations. These Key Principles have a number of requirements that show that an advice agency has a well-managed service, with staff who have relevant and up to date knowledge, and ensures that the quality of advice and support you receive will remain high.
