Oxfordshire County Council has a dedicated 'Funding and Grants' page, which details external funding opportunities for voluntary and third sector organisations.

Previous grants available e.g. the Councillor Community Budgets have now closed and will not continue in 2015/2016.

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?'

Useful organisations:

Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action:

Oxfordshire County Council provides many forms of funding for voluntary sector groups, all of which are detailed in full on their website. These include a list of regular updates and a guide to local funding.

The information is all clear, up-to-date and easy to navigate, with all supporting documents such as application forms, guidelines and contact details included.

What is the DSC Funder Rating?
