The UK Aid Direct team has been notified of a course designed for organisations considering applying for a UK Aid Direct grant and other DFID-related funds.

The course is entitled: DFID essentials: funding mechanisms, policies and priorities.

Run by BOND – the UK membership body for non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working in international development – the course will be held on 3 days in London:

  • Tuesday 1 May 2018
  • Monday 25 June 2018

If you are considering applying for a Community Partnership, Impact or Jo Cox Memorial grant in the current funding round, we would recommend attending the workshop on 1 May.

By the end of this course you are expected to be able to:

  • Explain DFID’s strategy and priorities clearly and confidently to others in your organisation
  • Describe the range of funding mechanisms DFID offers and where to find out about these
  • Compare different funds and identify those your organisation could apply for
  • Describe key approaches organisations need to follow when working with DFID including theory of change, logical frameworks, value for money, beneficiary feedback, adaptive management
  • Identify key steps your organisation must take to be ready to apply for DFID funding.
