About our Community Grant Consultants

Paul Burton

Community Grant Consultant
After four years as a Town Planner, Paul was introduced to the wonderful world of grants when he began working in Local Government as a Strategic Recreation and Community Planner. It wasn’t long before Paul recognised that the increasingly complex process of grant applications was deterring sporting and community groups from applying for funding. Not one to sit back and watch, Paul started Grantwise to give some much needed help to community groups wanting to attract government and corporate funding to their local community.

Paul has provided support and advice for countless grant applicants in his capacity as a Planner and directly contributed to securing more than $4 million in grant funds for his local community.

Paul takes a particular interest in strategic planning, demographic analysis, business case writing and stakeholder engagement.

Paul Burton is the Director of Grantwise and is a qualified Urban and Regional Planner
