Free Funding Search Service

We are pleased to offer your organisation a free funding search in partnership with the Communities, Equality & Third Sector Team at Brighton and Hove City Council. This service is your chance to meet one to one with the Council’s dedicated funding search officer, who will help you in your search for sources of funding using the national database Grantfinder.

The Grantfinder database contains UK and EU funding including Government funding streams, loans, grants, corporate sponsors and Charitable Trusts. The database is updated regularly and provides access to current funding opportunities. The Council subscribes to the Grantfinder licence to give you access to this comprehensive database.

You will talk through and select your organisation or project requirements, which will generate a list of potential funding sources. The results are prepared in a report that is emailed directly to your organisation. To achieve the most beneficial results from the search, a clear idea of your funding requirements should be identified before attending. You should be actively looking for funding and be planning to make an application shortly afterwards.

You will be asked to provide feedback on how the search has helped progress your fundraising.

  • Wednesday 29 January
