Business development


Much more than tender and grant writing.

Our approach to business development

Our approach to health and social sector business development generally begins with developing and articulating your service and project ideas through a design methodology. After developing an evidence-based model, we work alongside your organisation to match your service and project ideas to the right funding opportunity, while building the capability of your organisation to support good practice.

Take the time to meaningfully develop your ideas. Hiring a grant or tender writer can be problematic if they don't have a good understanding of your business. A tender or grant application should be the product of a robust development process.

We support your organisation by refining your innovative ideas into tangible business cases and/or service models that are ready for the right funding opportunity. This ensures that when the right funding opportunity arises, the hard work is already done. We use evidence reviews, community consultation, population profiling and needs assessments, and service mapping.

Develop your Organisation's ideas


Develop your Organisation's ideas


How do we develop your service and project ideas?

It is now widely expected by funders across the health and social services sector that service providers seeking funding have the ability to clearly articulate their project and service model/s. This includes how the model will address the needs of the community, the the evidence base of the service model, the rationale and need for the intervention, how the intervention will complement existing service infrastructure and how outcomes will be demonstrated throughout the intervention.  We support organisations by documenting and articulating their service model in a logical way by working through some key steps.

A funding opportunity—whether that be a grant application, tender application or pitch to a funder—should be the summary of a detailed planning and service design process with a clearly articulated model and logic. Take the time to design your program or service model first before thinking about matching it to funding opportunities.

Community conversations:  community involvement is key in the development of any service or initiative and funders want to know how the community were involved. We engage with the community through focus groups, conversations and surveys to ensure your project and service ideas meet the needs of the target population.

Evidence review : establishing a base of evidence makes or breaks funding applications. Funders want to see a body of evidence has informed your service model. We have access to academic databases and are highly skilled at developing a case for both why your service or project is needed and how it can be best implemented.

Population level data analysis:  understanding the need for a project or service is crticial in advocating for it's implementation but also shapes how the intervention is put in place. Funders expect that service provider organisations have an excellent grasp on regional data and we can provide an expert level of data analysis to determine the overall need for your project or service idea.

Stakeholder engagement:  it is important to leverage the knowledge of your internal staff, partner organisations and local topic experts when designing a service or initiative. We engage with expert stakeholders to unlock years of experience, avoid pitfalls and understand the local context.

Service mapping : understanding the local market enables your organisation to identify and develop it's niche as well as identify collaborators and competitors. Funders generally are looking to reduce service duplications and maintain a varied mix of service types. We can help you understand your position in the market through service mapping and market analysis.

Planning for evaluation:  it is now expected that service providers are reporting on outcomes rather than outputs across the health and social services sectors. We help your organisation develop an evaluation framework for your service or project idea to fully articulate your approach to data collection, reporting and outcomes measurement.

HOW DO WE MATCH YOUR IDEAS TO FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES?

Once we have worked with your organisation to develop and articulate your ideas and services we work collaboratively with you to identify ways to get your service or project funded. Projects and services can be funded through multiple avenues, including grants, tenders, partnerships and advocacy.

Grants and tender writing service

We can manage a pipeline of grant and funding opportunities for you. We access a variety of platforms for you and select the funding opportunities that match your areas of interest. 

After identifying funding opportunities we use the information documented during the business development phase to articulate a credible argument to fund your service or project idea. Grant and tender writing is an easier process with well developed ideas.

Proactively seek funding

Grants and tenders are only part of developing your organisational business. Engagement with a variety of funders and strategic partners can be beneficial to sound out potential sources of funding.

We can engage directly with philanthropic funders to understand the current funding environment in addition to facilitating community and stakeholder briefings to gain support for your initiative.
