BCVS can help groups and organisations to search for funding opportunities.

Our VCSE development team can provide support to encourage community fundraising and the writing of successful fundraising applications or tenders, and help in the delivery of resulting projects, including evaluation.

Small charitable and community groups are encouraged and supported to collaborate and work in partnership to secure funding instead of working in silo to benefit the local community.

BCVS are able to identify windows of funding opportunities, which are then cascaded to relevant charities and community groups through inclusion in the weekly BCVS bulletins.

We are then able to offer an advice and guidance model to local community groups who wish to flourish and develop.
