Funding Wales is the new funding search platform for the third sector in Wales.  Developed by Third Sector Support Wales the site enables third sector organisations to search hundreds of grant and loan finance opportunities from local, national and international sources. 

Sustainable funding is critical to the work of third sector organisations and the ability to search and identify appropriate sources of funding is an important factor in achieving this.  Third Sector Support Wales decided to develop this platform to help the third sector in Wales attain sustainable funding more easily.

Funding Wales can help organisations in Wales find the funding they need more quickly than ever before.  The search facility helps users to quickly and effectively identify relevant sources of funding.  The site is free to use with a simple registration process, and allows organisations to search for funding by purpose, location and amount with further fields available to refine searches.  The site also allows users to save searches and print off reports.

'We are delighted to be able to offer a user friendly and efficient platform to search for funding opportunities' said Dewi Smith, WCVA Sustainable Funding Manager. 'We recognise the importance of accessible information in relation to funding and hope that this site makes it easier for organisations in Wales to find the funding they need.'

In addition to searching for funding opportunities the site includes news items and case studies, as well as links to support, information and guidance which will ensure that organisations are equipped with all the tools needed to make good funding applications.

In order to have the best chance of securing funding, you should also contact your local CVC or WCVA who can provide dedicated support across a whole host of areas including, sustainable funding, good governance and volunteering.
