Funding Opportunities

Looking for new funding for your organisation? Use the search options below to filter our directory of current funding opportunities to find grants your organisation is eligible to apply for. 

Don' forget CVS Members can ask their CVS Development Officer to read through any bids prior to submission, or even support the writing of a bid. It can be so useful for someone outside your organisation to read through grant applications. Something may make sense to you, but not to a potential funder and could jeopardise your chances of a successful grant application.

Get in touch with your organisation's CVS Development Officer or contact CVS directly us and we will be delighted to help you with your bids: email or call 01270 763100.

Please note: We are aware that not all the search filters below are currently functioning as designed, we are working to correct this as soon as possible.
