The Bid Writer will register for funding applications by researching and collating all relevant information required for bids and grants.
The proposal will be written, edited, and reviewed before submission. The submission process will be observed, and updates reported back to the management team at Call4Backup.

What difference will you make?
Every penny raised by securing grants help subsidise costs, which helps us to support the people working and retired from our UK Police Services. It also allows the charity to grow, providing more support and treatment to support an early return to or prevention of sickness from work.
