Today Transition Network launches the first version of our Funding Primer ("Tips, suggestions and advice for getting your Transition group’s projects funded").  We hope you find it useful. Originally developed for the Transition Thrive training, it offers an overview of approaches and options for Transition initiatives seeking funding for their work.  On the date of its publication we thought it would be useful to catch up with Nicola Hillary, Transition Network’s Funding Manager and author of the Primer, to hear her advice on funding, how best to approach that all important funding application form and what it is that funders are REALLY looking for.
