July 2015 - Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council does not currently have any fund available to local organisations. However, a list of funding opportunities for local voluntary is available on the council's 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'

Voluntary Sector Funding Pages:

Rochdale Council Community Grants page

European Funding

Charitable Trust Funding

Useful organisations:

Rochdale CVS

This website has a clearly defined 'grants page', found under the 'Community and Living' section, where information can be obtained on all of the council's funding arrangements for voluntary sector groups.

Some details of the Borough of Rochdale Fund are out of date, however contact details are given for the Community Foundation for Greater Manchester who deal with this fund, who were able to give more up-to-date information.
