Shropshire Council has fund available to support various local projects and initiatives. Diverse projects are funded each year, however note that the council usually awards small grants. For further guidance, please visit the council's website or contact the Community Development Team.

In addition, the Shropshire Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly is also able to guide and support local voluntary organisations. More information is available on their website.

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'

Shropshire Voluntary Sector Information:

Voluntary sector funding is managed by an external funding team, who are based in the department of Economic Development.

The information on this website was up-to-date at the time of writing; however it is best to contact the external funding team when considering these funds, to check any further developments.

We were not able to obtain any information about the Shropshire Community Fund; however the staff in the External Funding team were very helpful and forthcoming with information.

What is the DSC Funder Rating?
