Case Study: Jericho Road Project

Bidding for voluntary sector funding

The Customer

The Jericho Road Project is a charity supporting women involved in the sex industry in Nottingham. It helps them to make life changing informed choices through befriending, outreach work, a life centre drop-in, prison visits and crisis support.


The work had the following objectives:

  • Secure more funding through bids and grant applications
  • Increase the number of applications made
  • Create written material to draw on in the future
  • Update the funders database through finding new funding sources


  • One of our voluntary sector bid writers met with the client to understand their work, and discuss potential funders
  • Research was carried out on potential new funding sources
  • Applications and bids were submitted to trusts and funding organisations
  • Written material was created for use in future bids and applications


β€œIn times of increasing competitiveness around grant funding, we needed to increase the number of applications made but had insufficient resource to employ a fundraiser.  Silverlock enabled us to significantly increase our application level. We have had a positive return on our investment and are looking to work with Silverlock again.”
