About Us

At Bidshaper, we know you have a choice. There are other companies in the market offering bid support services, but we think that we are different from the pack. We specialise in health and care, with decades of sector experience in our team. We have run Digital Health companies ourselves, successfully applied for funding and helped others to do so. Our knowledge and experience are now at your disposal, as is our vast network of contacts and alliances. No longer do you need to struggle to write a funding application with people who don't understand your business or the landscape it operates in, talk to us instead.

Our values

Passion. Integrity, Dedication.

We bring huge enthusiasm to everything we do, completely driven to achieve success for our clients so that they can realise their ambitions for their businesses.


We will always be honest with you in everything we do together. Our relationships with our clients are based on transparent communications and technical excellence. We pride ourselves on being approachable and flexible. 

We work hard to give our clients the best chances of being successful in their funding applications. If there are gaps in the submission content, we will do our best to find third party experts who can fill them and bring credibility to the content.
