Freelance Bid Writer (paid opportunity)

The House of Deviant is Wales’ first and only learning disabled drag troupe. We are a South Wales based co-produced project that uses drag performance as a vehicle to explore self-esteem and autonomy with adults with learning disabilities and/or autism, who can otherwise have difficulties with issues such as social isolation and getting their voices heard.

We have identified the funding stream we would like to apply to and would like to recruit an experienced bid writer to write and develop the bid. 

Following the bid we would like to continue the relationship to help us research and find additional funding sources for House of Deviant and the larger remit of Fflamingo CIC.
