How to get funding through government departments

Government departments spending UK aid share their priorities and procedures for accessing their funds. Part of Bond's #Funding4Dev week


UK official development assistance (ODA) is increasingly being spent through government departments other than the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), formerly the Derpartment for International Development (DFID). 

This session brings together those government departments so you can hear their priorities and how they have been impacted by Covid-19. Learn how to access funding to reach the most marginalised from a range of departments, including the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). 

Within the context of Covid-19 and the recent DFID/FCO merger, you will learn:  

  • how ODA is being spent through other government departments  
  • the funding priorities of these departments
  • how these departments engage with civil society organisations.

This webinar is part of Bond's #Funding4Dev week. 


This session will run on Friday 27 November at 11:00 UK time for 90 minutes.

The session will be recorded and made avaialble on our website afterwards.

Booking will close at 09:00 GMT on the day of the webinar.
