Despite requests for information from this council, we have been unable to confirm their arrangements for community and voluntary sector funding. We will continue to try and obtain the relevant information and will update this entry at a later date.

The 'Wolverhampton City Council 4 Community' page can provide information about different sources of external funding.

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: 'Finding your Commissioner'

Voluntary Sector Funding Pages:

Voluntary and Community Sector homepage

Useful organisations:

Wolverhampton Network Consortium is an organisation operating within Wolverhampton that helps voluntary organisations find funding, and also provides some funding itself, in the form of grassroots grants. WNC is independent of Wolverhampton County Council:

This website was very easy to use, with a distinct voluntary sector homepage that was easy to navigate, and relevant contact details of which department to contact.

However, it does contain information about previous grant schemes that are now not available; Wolverhampton City Council is currently only distributing one of its two advertised grant schemes to voluntary sector groups at present, but this is not published anywhere on the website.

We have been in regular contact with the Community Initiatives Team who administer voluntary sector funding, and they have been consistently helpful and forthcoming with information throughout our research.

What is the DSC Funder Rating?

We need your help

Our ratings are by no means a final verdict, just a starting point to begin discussions about the voluntary sector’s experience of government funders. We are inviting all subscribers to share their experiences and contribute to the DSC Funder Rating. If you can help, please email us at
