Not really, I touted a lot of council departments and funding bodies \"but you havent got a constitution\" \"but you’re not established and you cant access funding unless you are established\" \"no funding available unless you can produce previous 3 years of accounts\" were some of my replies.
Step by step we attended a lot of dead end meetings, created a constitution, got out bank account and then beg and borrowed the rest of our equipment. It wasnt until we had some hard evidence of what we were doing was actually working that the funders ears pricked up and we got our first pot of funding from the olympic legacy charity Sported.
