Funding and grants

A close up photo of lots of pound coins

Funding and grants are an important element of the support available for charities, social enterprises and community groups and can be used for a range of purposes, whether it's to help set you up or expand your activities and services.

If you are successful in applying for funding or grants, it can be combined with other income generation streams, such as fundraising, business trading, donations or legacies, to maximise your financial resources.

There are a large number of funding sources available, at different times of the year, both locally and nationally.

To find a potential funding source for your charity, organisation or community group, take a look at our new grants tool.
