Further information on these funds can be found on the Council's 'Grants page', where a wide range of alternative sources of funding are advertised, including local grant-making trusts and foundations.

Local Community Funding

County Councillors each hold a community grant budget of £5,000. The funding is aimed at community and voluntary organisations and provides grants usually for small-scale projects that meet the needs of the local community. Interested applicants should contact their local Warwickshire County Council Area Team. For information on each local area team, please follow this link: Funding for local projects.

Arts Funding

The County Arts Service offers advice and information on arts funding available in the region. For more information contact them on 01926 412492 or email

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'
