Feedback from groups using the funding service:

"Advised us on the meaning of jargon, and how to write a positive application."

"We are just a group of parents who wanted a better place within our community and could have been so easily put off applying if it wasn't for the friendly, professional assistance we received."

"The face-to-face contact we had in the early stages was crucial to our submitting the application. Without the help, advice & patience, we would not have been able to cope with such an application or would made a complete mess of it."

For more information please contact the PAVO Helpdesk on 0845 009 3288 or
