A new free smart website for the whole voluntary and community sector in the UK, including social enterprise, providing access to thousands of funding and finance opportunities, plus tools and resources supporting organisations to develop sustainable income strategies appropriate to their needs has been launched.
Phase one of Funding Central was launched on 17 June 2009 with further enhancements and additional tools and resources being released in September 2009.
It is managed by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations in partnership with j4b Software and Publishing and is funded by the Office of the Third Sector. It covers national funding and finance opportunities for voluntary and community organisations operating in England from European, national, regional and local government and charitable sources.
If you are completely or relatively new to fundraising, Funding Central provides a guided search enabling you to identify the most appropriate funding and finance opportunities that best suit you and the beneficiaries that you support.
