Community and not-for-profit groups looking to perfect their grant writing skills can head along to workshops next week.

Corangamite Shire mayor Jo Beard said the workshops were a chance to learn about what makes a good application.

“Presenters from council, the South West Community Foundation, Regional Development Victoria, Regional Arts Victoria, and philanthropic funds will share tips on how to approach funders, and the importance of building partnership and networks,” she said.

The workshop will be at the Killara Centre, Manifold Street, Camperdown, on Monday, March 19, from 7pm-9pm.

Another will be held at the Moyne Shire Council Community Services Centre, 16 Atkinson Street, Port Fairy, on Sunday, March 25, from 1.30pm-3.30pm.
