Funding Advice

CAVS funding advice services

CAVS staff provide a free service helping you to find sources of funding appropriate to your group’s activities.

Using extensive resources we can search a wide range of charitable and grant-making trusts. In addition, staff hold information about local, regional and national grants together with directories and guides to other funding sources.

Having identified appropriate funding sources, the staff can help you through the application process.

Funding Search through Idox

We apologise for any inconvenience as of 1 April 2018 the Open4Community funding portal will no longer be available in its current form. 

We appreciate the importance of a funding search facility for the third sector and are pleased to inform you that Third Sector Support Wales (WCVA & County Voluntary Councils) are developing a bespoke system for Wales which will provide the same level of functionality as the current portals.  We are aiming to launch the new system by September 2018. 

We are endeavouring to find a solution for the interim period and will inform you as soon as possible.
