July 2015 - Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council does not appear to have any fund available to support local voluntary and community organisations at the moment. Please visit the council's website for future available 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'

Useful organisations:

Tameside Third Sector Coalition

It was difficult to gather any information about this council, as they have no specific unit that deals with voluntary sector funding and the link for 'Community and Voluntary Sector Grants' in the Advice and Benefits section connects straight through to the Tameside Third Sector Coalition website.

It was difficult to contact anyone from the council to discuss the grant schemes due to the funding being devolved to separate departments; however the staff at Thameside Third Sector Coalition were very helpful and informative.
