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'

Rutland Council does not publish any of its grant-schemes to voluntary sector groups on its website. We were able to make contact with the Cultural Support Officer who manages the community grants scheme and was very helpful and provided us with relevant information.
