No information on Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council's grants and funding for voluntary sector organisations could be located, only external links to Voluntary Action Rotherham, which brings together VCS organisations in Rotherham.

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 Action Rotherham:

Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council does not have a central unit that deal with funding for the voluntary sector. There appears to only be two grant schemes running currently, however more may be developed over time.

The grant schemes available were not widely publicised in any area of the council's website and were found through searching in the A-Z section.
