SCVS Development Team can provide up-to-date information on grants and other kinds of support available for your group's activities.

If you would like us to do a funding search for you email a request to funding@scvs.org.uk

To help us identify the most appropriate sources of funding for you tell us:

  • What you need funding for
  • How much funding you need and by when
  • Who will benefit eg children, older people, people with disabilities
  • Whether you are a registered charity, community group or CIC
  • Your organisation’s annual income (to nearest £1,000)

Details of appropriate funders and any other information which we think might help will then be sent to you.

You can also search for funders yourself through Open 4 Community, a free basic online funding search that can help identify suitable funding opportunities for your activity or project.

You can register or log in by clicking on the link below. New users will need to complete a simple registration form with your contact details and preferred password. Once registered you can conduct as many funding searches as you like.

To use Open 4 Community you will need to answer a few simple questions to conduct a Search for Funding for a specific project or activity. You can also use the Browse Funding facility which selects funders firstly by type of organisation then by activities. If you need help there is a User Guide in the Help and Advice section.

TIP - Before you can apply for grants you must have an appropriate governing document and a bank account in the group's name. If you need help with this please contact one of the development team.
