Changes to Funding Central

Funding Central is unique providing access to thousands of grants, contracts and loan finance opportunities from local, national and EU funding sources, all in one place.

After seven years the Cabinet Office is no longer providing funding to run Funding Central. Funding Central has been a success helping organisations find vital funding. NCVO are committed to continuing Funding Central but we need to replace this funding.

To keep Funding Central sustainable and accessible to the voluntary sector we will be introducing a small annual subscription.

Funding Central will continue to be free for smaller organisations and provide low cost access to larger organisations and individual users.


To use Funding Central from 15 June 2016 you will need to subscribe. This includes:

  • Searching our database of thousands of funding opportunities
  • Receiving personalised weekly funding updates, news and deadlines
  • Accessing practical guides and online tools to support your funding strategy
  • Finding funding news, events and training.
