Third sector support:

Funding

Whatever the size of your third sector organisation, funding is crucial.

ACVO can support on every step of the journey from finding sources of funding to completing applications as well as connecting you with local and national funders

Looking for support with funding?

Identifying funding opportunities and writing grant applications can seem overwhelming, especially when the future sustainability of your group is dependent on gaining funding support.

Our supportive Funding Officer, Claire Shaw, can help your organisation with every step of the funding application process, from carrying out funding searches to proofreading your application.

If you have any questions about funding or want to explore ways of securing grants to ensure the work of your organisation is as impactful as it can be, complete our Funding Support Enquiry Form below and Claire will get back in touch with you
