Get Help with Funding

Our expert team can help you find and apply for funding.  We run regular training and networking events where you can meet funders, find out about new funding opportunities and how to apply.  We run bid writing workshops and can work with you on getting your application right.  We work in partnership with a number of local and national funders and know what they’re looking for.  We also share the latest information about what’s currently available on this page, in our newsletter and on social media.

Feel free to get in touch at any time to discuss your ideas and needs and we’ll help you find the right funding for the job.

Get Seed Funding from Us

In addition we manage some small pots of funding ourselves including:

  • seed funding for community learning projects – Find out more
  • seed funding for health and wellbeing projects
  • the Thriving Kirklees Health Action Fund – grants of up to £4000 for projects that will improve the health of disadvantaged families and young people – Find out more

All of these funds are managed by our Supporting Communities Lead, Bridget Hughes.  You need to talk through your idea with her, and then she will guide you through the application process.  By doing it this way, we can ensure that only ideas that have a good chance of being funded go through to the decision makers.
