June 2015 - At the moment, the Peterborough Council does not have fund available for grant scheme. However, Peterborough Council for Voluntary Sector Service provides support for voluntary and community organisations.

For more information about how PCVS can help you, please visit their website or contact them.

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'

Peterborough City Council has no central unit for managing voluntary sector funding, however the information displayed on the Peterborough City Council Grants programmes was easy to find under the main menu in the Community and Living section.

All of the details relating to deadlines and application dates were up-to-date in this section, apart from the link to the Peterborough in Bloom programme, which now no longer exists.
