South Gloucestershire Council helps grant-seekers

South Gloucestershire Library Service has launched a new online resource available in libraries across the district to help both individuals and community groups identify funding from grant-giving organisations.

The online database is provided by the charity FunderFinder which specialises in information and advice about grant-giving charitable trusts and foundations in the UK. The database holds the details of over 4,500 of these organisations and matches the needs of an individual or community group against the relevant funders that best match their profile.

Cllr Heather Goddard, executive member for communities, said: “This will be a very useful resource for anyone who is looking for additional funding to help develop their own lives or that of a local community organisation. The Council works hard to support the voluntary sector and this will be one way in which we can help them find funding to support their valuable work.”

If you are interested in using this resource please contact any South Gloucestershire library. Computers can be booked free of charge at the library of your choice at a time and date convenient to you.

A member of staff will help you access the database and a short guide on how to use the resource will be available.

You can call in person or contact any of our libraries on 01454 868006.
