We know that drafting compelling bids and winning new business from public sector customers isn’t easy. However, WP has been doing this for almost a decade – we know just how to do it.
Our Winning Proposals Service can help almost any company to generate business, be it to support a quote for a product or service or in response to a formal invitation to tender.
The Winning Proposals Service offers you a selection of support; you can choose all of them or just the ones you want. It is designed for those organisations who wish to respond to tender opportunities but who may not have the time, knowledge or experience.
The service offers six separate but related categories:
- Developing a bid strategy
- Proposal writing
- Help with proposal design and layout
- Proposal proof-reading
- Proposal writing training
- Access to industry and technical advisers
At all stages in the proposal production process, WP provides assistance to increase your proposal’s quality. High quality, selective tendering allows you to keep costs down and benefit from saved time and efficient use of resources.
Our structured bid management system also helps you to produce a consistent sales message. This is designed to secure profitable business from your proposition which meets the requirements of your customer, giving a better chance of repeat work.
We can help businesses shape their ideas into projects with real grant funding potential, identify appropriate funding streams and then apply for grant funding. We offer a range of innovative and creative solutions to help source and win public funding for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.
We can offer you the following support in accessing business grants:
- Identify potential funding for your project
- Advise on eligibility, match funding requirements and likely success
- Maximise your funding opportunities by developing ideas into eligible projects
- Write quality grant applications
- Work with you on a medium term business plan to encourage investment
- Prepare a step-by-step business growth strategy to ensure the project is ready
to receive funds
- Provide guidance on business support products/services
- Advise on improving your business’ or product’s potential to succeed.
We specialise in obtaining funding on your behalf from Regional Development Agencies and the European Union. We have a formidable success rate on securing government grants. We can also offer our expertise in working with entrepreneurs to develop a strategy for growing their business over the medium to long-term.
Identifying and drafting tender responses, keeping abreast of current programme offerings and deciding on which tenders to bid for is time consuming, demands a systematic approach and requires thorough industry knowledge.
With our expertise in sourcing and accessing grant funding and public tenders, Wessex Partnerships is ideally placed to provide breaking news on tender opportunities and provide tendering advice for SMEs.
Our Tender Alert Service serves to identify, filter and report on existing and new funding sources on a regular basis.
Subscription to our tender alert service will enhance the capacity of your organisation to identify and access external funds. The benefits will be particularly significant to those organisations who need additional resources to identify and compete for public tenders in the most cost-effective way.

Companies regularly need external support, but not all can find the right support at an affordable price. WP offers almost a decade of experience in small business management to other enterprises. This is an invaluable way to learn expertise from a highly successful company. The level of detail will be dependent upon requirements and the audience; programmes are tailored to suit your needs and budget.
WP offers training in:
- Business planning
- Customer relationships
- Leading to succeed
- Tendering for contracts
- Market research and data analysis
- Project performance management
We also provide high quality mentoring support for business leaders that offers relevant, effective and challenging learning opportunities. We will first carry out a personal needs analysis to diagnose leadership and management needs. This will also provide a detailed personal development plan and advice/support on how to achieve the plan’s aims. The ongoing mentoring support will then be tailored towards progression towards these specific goals.
Currently we can also help you access Leadership and Management grant funding of up to £1,000 towards the costs of your training and development.
