About this talk

In this session colleagues from the Cabinet Office’s Grants Applicant Programme (GAP) and their delivery partner, AND Digital, will share their experience of getting the pilot Find a Grant service off the ground in a matter of months. By setting up and growing a new Government Grants Community of Interest - which now has over 600 members - they have co-created, co-design and tested their service.

As of now (23 June 2022), over 48 grants have featured on Find a Grant with a total value of £873m. And since going live over 6000 people have visited the site - with 144 having gone on to click ‘apply’ too.

Between now and March 2023 they will co-develop the site further into an end-to-end find and apply service. Join the session to find out how they have taken user research into the realms of genuine co-creation.
