Central Government – We deliver millions through grantmaking programmes such as Grassroots Grants for the Cabinet Office DCLG and attract new donations and local endowments through match funds for the Community First / Office of Civil Society programme.
Local Authorities – We provide an independent mechanism for delivering Local Authority funding streams efficiently and effectively according to the community plan objectives and area priorities.
