Further details about these funders and their programmes are here.

Please read this information and if you think you are eligible contact us to book your appointments.

We will ask you to submit a brief written outline of your proposed activity or project together with an estimated budget to show how much you will need and what for.

If you need some help to develop your proposal and budget or if you want some guidance on where to apply then make an appointment with one of the CCVS development staff.

Please note appointments are a guide to what funding is available and not a guarantee of a successful application.  Appointments are for 20 minutes

Sessions with funders are by appointment only, to book please call 01223 464696 or email:

We will need to know which funders you want to see and information about the project you are seeking funding for.

Read about the funders here before you book:

The Heritage Lottery Fund funds a broad range of activities that help people of all ages explore their heritage together. These can range from small scale events, exhibitions & workshops to larger projects that include training, volunteering, conservation & restoration.
HLF have a range of new programmes with grants from £3,000 to £5 million.

Cambridgeshire Community Foundation manages a range of charitable funds, on behalf of individuals and organisations, and awards grants to charitable projects undertaken by voluntary/community groups and charities in Cambridgeshire. Applications can be submitted at any time and are considered on a quarterly basis. The next application deadline is 1 February 2017. Details of how to apply can be found here

The Evelyn Trust is interested in healthcare projects in communities in Cambridgeshire through our rolling small grants programme under which applications in the range £4,000 to £10,000 can be considered at any time. Whilst welcoming other applications we would particularly encourage applications that are in line with the Cambridgeshire Health and Wellbeing Strategy, especially projects which:
 Support young people within families with mental health, alcohol, violence or substance abuse issues
 Assist working age adults with long term conditions and healthcare communities that support these issues
 Enable older people to receive help and support in the community rather than needing to go into hospital or long term care.

Living Sport can provide advice on funding opportunities available to:
 sports clubs to help them to continue to develop and sustain their growth
 non-sports organisations interested in organising sporting activities to support health, well-being, inclusion, participation or other objectives
Funding opportunities can help to grow and develop coaching staff, increase the number of members and support with the purchase of new equipment.

Tesco Bags of Help funds physical improvements of open spaces such as building new pocket parks, sports facilities, woodland walks and community gardens and projects that include volunteer training, equipment purchases, community, sports and leisure activities. Following a public vote by Tesco customers three projects in each region will receive grants of £5000, £2000 and £1000 respectively.

Cambridge City Council Area Committee grants 2017—18 are for neighbourhood activity which will specifically benefit people disadvantaged through social or economic exclusion. Maximum award is £5,000. Grants can be awarded to non-profit, voluntary and community organisations or groups of local residents. They can go towards venue hire, arts or sports activities, transport for trips for older/younger residents, materials or equipment. The application process is launched in early Jan 2017.
