June 2015 - At the moment, the Nottingham City Council is not operating any grant scheme. However, more information about external funding opportunities is available through contacting the "Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service" by e-mail at or by phone 0115 934 8400.

Many local authorities are now moving away from grant-making and beginning to use commissioning as a way to distribute funding to the third sector. Local commissioners can be difficult to find and identify, however NAVCA have created a guide that may help: 'Where is Your Commission Find Your Commissioner?
