Funding Advice

We provide funding advice and resources to help community organisations:

  • Search for grant funding schemes that suit your needs
  • Understand and meet funders’ eligibility criteria
  • Write a realistic plan and budget
  • Complete, review and evaluate funding applications
  • Get a constitution and/or appropriate policies in place
  • Set up basic financial procedures
  • Find out about public sector tendering opportunities
  • Look at other ways to maximise your group’s income, such as using gift aid and other tax-efficient methods or running trading activities / fundraising programmes.

We also offer the opportunity to meet potential funders at fairs and events, and run training workshops on funding and income generation.
