Village Notice Board

SNVB - Supporting voluntary activity




A free funding website to enable local charities and small groups to access a huge range of funding opportunities has been launched by LION Ltd.

LION is a registered charity with a consortium of 3 local support and development organisations (LIO’s) – Nene Valley Community Action, South Northants Volunteer Bureau and Groundwork Northants. These organisations offer a wide range of services to front line charitable organisations allowing them to get on with the real job on the front line supporting vulnerable people and communities.

The website www.open4community.info/northamptonshire contains 100’s of funding opportunities many of which will be new to local groups. The site is easy to use and gives a wealth of information and tips and all relevant contact details.  It will also provide information on local opportunities and enable members of LION to analyse the types of funding searches being undertaken within the county and therefore to better tailor and focus other support.

Chair of LION, Rosemary Hadaway said “It is no surprise that finding funding to support groups is becoming more difficult as austerity measures bite. This very comprehensive website will enable groups to search for relevant opportunities themselves and keep up to date with any new funds that open. Of course, the local LIO’s are there to support groups further by providing a application checking service to ensure that local groups have the best possible chance of being successful.”
