The London Borough of Havering Council currently does not have any grants or development funds available for Voluntary and Community Sector groups.

The council does however employ an External Funding team, which exists to help voluntary sector groups find funding from outsides sources: 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:

Havering Voluntary Organisations

Useful organisations:

Havering Association of Voluntary and Community Organisations


Unfortunately Havering Council is not currently able to provide grants to voluntary and community sector groups, which is reflected in the voluntary sector content on their website and is also made clear in a statement on their 'grants and development fund' page.

During the course of our research we were able to make contact with the External Funding team, who were very helpful and happy to take any further enquiries from us in the future.
