Finding money

Doing your own research

Below is a list of useful resources for identifying funding for yourself or a project that your organisation is running.

Many of the funding websites listed in these resources also provide newsletters and email alerts about new funds and deadlines.

See our advice on starting a voluntary organisation.

Ask us to search for funding for you

If you are a voluntary or community group or a public body or individual based in East Sussex, our External Funding team can carry out a search for you using a comprehensive database of UK, Lottery and European Union grants and awards.

Councils for Voluntary Services (CVSs)

All Councils for Voluntary Services provide funding advice as part of their support services.

Contacting other organisations

Share information and good practice on funding by joining a local network for businesses or voluntary and community groups. If you don’t know where to start, try these ideas.
