Each week, we compile a list of funding opportunities for the VCSE sector. This week, organisations in our sector began lobbying the government. We need to be involved in allocation of ‘Levelling Up‘ funds. Firstly, we have seen the incredible work and impact of our communities. Secondly, we know many have done this out of love. Thirdly, we are closest to our communities. We understand their needs. Please see below for local and national funding opportunities.

We cannot let this week pass without mentioning the devastating fire at Krowji. Our friends Creative Kernow have now launched the Krowji Emergency Campaign. It will provide emergency support for our creative community. All of the money raised will go directly towards supporting Krowji artists who have been worst-affected. Help plan and rebuild for the future.
