Funding advice and support

Do you need help finding funding or applying for a grant? We have various ways in which we can help, whether it’s for your long-term plans or for one-off projects.

Funding Alert

Our monthly Funding Alert is sent out to members and has the latest funding sources and updates. Please click here to subscribe to our mailing list.


Through our grantfinder service, we provide a personalised search for your new or existing project. You will receive a personalised report that will enable you to contact funders directly and this will allow you to see if their requirements fit your needs.

Critical Friend

Critical Friend is our service that provides a funding application check before you send the documents to the provider. Please get in touch with us and we’ll look at the funders’ criteria and check that your application meets their requirements. Allow time in the application process for us to review and feedback to you though, so don’t leave it to the last day as we cannot guarantee it will be returned in time.
