Promoting and supporting voluntary activity across South Northamptonshire


Funding Advice

snvb has an accredited funding advisor ready to help you with your funding applications.  Contact the volunteer centre for a FREE consultation.

We can help you to build a sensible budget and find your way around the maze of funding options.  Whilst we cannot actually do your fundraising for you, we are able to help you to target your efforts.  Additionally, we can review a funding application, prior to submission, and provide constructive feedback.

We also promote a free funding website (Funding Central) that enables local charities and small groups to access a huge range of funding opportunities.

This website is hosted by NCVO (The National Council for Voluntary Organisations) and is funded by central government.

It contains 1000’s of funding opportunities, many of which may be new to local groups. The site is easy to use and gives a wealth of information and tips and all relevant contact details.

Funding Central will allow you to probe for funding sources and grants from government, trusts, companies, charitable organisations and other bodies. You can register and then save your searches and create reports to help you along the way.

There is a series of “How to” videos on You Tube
