Funding guides and books

Funding guides

The following guides have been put together by our Funding Team to help you through the process of finding and applying for funding.

Funding books

Libraries are a good source of information with lots of free books about grant-making trusts and how to apply, and free computers which you can use to search for funding on the East Sussex 4 Community website.

Most of these titles are reference books for use in the library only. You can just drop in and start using them straightaway. Click the book titles to find out which libraries have them.
