SME were great in helping us getting our most substantial grant to date. At YOYO Youth Club we offer a safe, fun weekly session for young people age 11+, starting out with no capital and obviously limited income we really needed some help to get some equipment which we felt was vital in working effectively with young people. The whole process of applying for Lottery funds seemed a bit overwhelming but Claire from SME was great, from the initial meeting to work out need including tech advice from mark at SME, help with filling in the forms and even working out how to show our groups finances. Claire completed most of the leg work for us allowing us to focus on the group. Once our funding was secured, Rachel and Mark swung into action ensuring we received the best equipment to meet our needs. They are certainly an efficiently, friendly team and incredibly helpful for those with limited time and experience of the funding process. YOYO achieved a grant of £9,859! allowing us to get fully kitted out with everything ‘IT’ we could imagine. Without the help of SME I doubt we would have got through the application process.
