About Us – Shaw Funding

Shaw Funding is an independent consultancy that aims to improve the practice, application and understanding of funding by supporting those seeking funding with the right information, skills and advice to make the best of their work. This could be done by one-to-one funding surgeries, delivering funding workshops to the whole organisation or writing funding applications to Europe, Central Government, Lottery strands or the many Trust and Grant bodies that exist on your behalf.

Shaw Funding is a UK funding consultancy offering a range of fundraising services to all sized third sector organisations (including charities, community interest companies, voluntary and community organisations, and social enterprises). An important aspect of all the work we do in supporting organisations is for them to learn from the experiences of developing applications and their collecting learning, and therefore we look to work in partnership with you to not only improve the chances of funding now, but also in the future.

Peter Mckenzie Shaw

Funding Consultant

Peter has worked within funding for many years applying for multi-million pound applications for Herefordshire County Council, Worcester City Council, Worcestershire County Council, educational institutes and hundreds of third sector organisations up and down the country. Peter has also been a BIG Lottery Advisor for the past 4 years and an assessor for grant giving bodies. This has enabled Peter to develop his skills and knowledge on both sides of the funding fence, from assessing grant applications and managing successful projects to supporting organisations in understanding their potential of fundraising, applying for funding, and securing funding for projects.

Other than his direct funding work, Peter currently delivers many lectures to educational institutions throughout the West Midland on funding, business and sport. He is also a trustee of a local charity. Peter has acquired many relevant and necessary qualifications to enable him to offer and assure expert advice; including a BA (Hons), a Masters in Organisation Management and an M.B.A. along with project management and lifelong learning qualifications.
