Harrow Council also administers a share of the Edward Harvist Trust Fund, providing small grants of up to £1,500 primarily to small and emerging local voluntary groups with charitable aims.

The council mainly fund capital costs through this fund. A budget is allocated to the council twice a year from the trust if the money is available. If funding is available then the council will advertise this on their website.

Applicants are advised to contact the grants team to find out if funding is available and to discuss their project before applying. Further details are available here.

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: 'Where is Your Commissioner?'
