From grants for sporting and cultural events in Scotland to funds for organisations supporting families through the cost-of-living crisis, there are currently numerous open funding applications. Let us help you find them.

Through researching opportunities and working with organisations to develop powerful applications, we can help you find and secure new grant funders. Our consultants can support you by training your internal team and through reviewing proposals before they are sent, or we can deliver a complete grant-maker fundraising programme. Either approach will help ensure that you maximise your returns from this source.

So, what grants are currently out there? Here are just a few of the latest that may be of interest:
