Project Re-planning Clinic for MCOP 2.0

Funded in June 2022

How do you deliver a  project when you are given less funds than you asked for?

This is a question with which all grant recipients must wrestle at some point in their grant-seeking career!

The Action Grants team ran a project re-planning clinic for organisations and groups funded as part of DFFH's MCOP 2.0 and gave input from experienced advisors (community project managers and implementors) on how to re-plan projects.
