Support for your organisation
We can help you find the right funding for your project or organisation.
Hundreds of funding opportunities exist with funds available from a few pounds to thousands of pounds, however, it is increasingly competitive. Generally, funders want to fund good projects, groups and organisations that meet community needs, have an impact and improve people’s lives in some way. Not all projects and groups need funding but if you think you do, WVCA can help you to find the right funder for your project, group or organisation and can provide support with the application process.
