Latest grants list

The list is in date order and some deadlines are very soon. They will not be applicable to all of you (most are for specific regions), and you might find that none of them are suitable for your district. I have selected them from the latest Funding Central alert as being the most appropriate for WF districts. I hope that a quick scan of this list will allow you to find those sources appropriate to your district. Each heading is a link to the relevant page on Funding Central. You need to be registered with Funding Central to see the linked pages. Registration is free if your annual turnover is less than £100,000. Go to www.fundingcentral.org.uk/wizard.aspx to register.
