For the past 15 years he was Wirral Council’s Project Manager responsible for National Lottery project activity across Wirral. He has assisted hundreds of groups and organisations in successfully applying for National Lottery funding – with grant successes totalling over £26 Million.
Over this time Peter has built up extensive knowledge and expertise in advising clients how to write successful bids, helping to deliver small scale schemes to multi-million pound projects. He was joint founder of the Merseyside Funding Information Portal (MFIP) and has delivered many workshops across Wirral and Merseyside about National Lottery funding opportunities. Peter has also managed National Lottery projects on behalf of Wirral Council so understands the challenges in delivering projects.
The cost per person attending the course will be £50.
