Find funding

Looking for Funding?

BVSC subscribes to NCVO's Funding Portal, Funding Central which offers affordable access to information about thousands of grants, contracts and loan finance opportunities from local, national and international funding sources, all in one place, through one search.

Funding Central will enable you to:

  • Search an extensive database to identify opportunities that match your project
  • Receive new funding opportunities tailored to your needs direct to your inbox each week, plus all the latest updates, news and deadlines
  • Access practical guides and online tools to support your funding strategy.

A subscription to Funding Central is free for small organisations (with an income of less than £100,000)  For larger organisations the subscription is £120 (including VAT) per annum.

We also circulate funding news and alerts through our Weekly e-bulletin which is available to both members and non-members of BVSC. Sign up for the Weekly e-bulletin.

Setting up a not-for-profit

If you are in the process of setting up a group or not-for-profit in Birmingham and exploring your funding options, our Ask BVSC service may be able to help you. The service is by appointment on a one-to-one basis and sessions take place at BVSC's offices in Digbeth.

Funding Fairs

We organise occasional funding fairs at BVSC where you can drop in and meet funders who are actively supporting organisations in the region. Take a look at our events page for more information.
