support with finding funding

We can help you work out what funding you need and find the right funder. We can work with you on a one-to-one basis, or you can come along to one of our workshops or events.

We run a Funding Fair a couple of times a year, when we invite a range of funders, from the National Lottery to smaller local funders like One Community and The Loose Change Charity along for you to meet.

We also run regular workshops throughout the year on:

  • Finding Your Funder
  • Applying to Trusts and Foundations
  • Bid writing

And we always try to highlight new funding opportunities at our networking events and Members’ Meetings.

what can i apply for now?

You can find details of all the current funds that are accepting applications below. We also share these on social media and send them out in our monthly newsletter.

support with writing applications

We can also help you work on your applications, again either on a one-to-one basis or at one of our regular bid writing workshops. These cover things like:

  • Writing Your First Bid
  • Improving Your Grant Applications

If you haven’t applied for funding before you can start with one of our TSL Kirklees Small Grants Funds and we’ll support you through the process. See Current Funding Opportunities for ones that are open now, or speak to us to find out more.

Partnership bids

To access larger pots of longer-term funding, you may need to be part of a partnership of organisations all working together. We can help you make those connections, if you haven’t done already, and work on your application.

    • Social enterprises may be eligible for both third sector and business grants (but will be excluded most grants from Charitable Trusts and Foundations)
    • Social enterprises will be eligible for social investment funding and loans
