Following feedback from stakeholders we have reviewed our website to help organisations more easily find LCF funders operating in their area.
Our updated funders search has launched today and will assist local community groups looking for LCF funding with a clear and simple access point to information about funders.
The main 'finding funding' box on the Home page now links to the new search function. This search only shows Environmental Bodies (EBs) which provide LCF funds. The search function allows people to use the drop down country and county fields to narrow down the list to EBs who fund in their area. By clicking on the funders name, users will be able to access information about the funder, their funding criteria and how to contact the organisation to apply for LCF funding. You can access the new funders search here.
The previous Environmental Body search has also been updated to enhance the search function. Users can still search for EBs who are, or who previously have been, enrolled with ENTRUST by using drop down filters for country, county and 'object' funded. However, to make the search function more flexible, we have also included a search box which allows the user to enter the EB number, if known. Users can also use this search box to enter part or all of the EB name, if known. You can access the updated EB search here.
If you need help finding funding, we have updated our 'finding funding' guide, which you can access on the training resources page of our website or the document is available on the right hand side of this page. You can also contact our Helpline on 01926 488 300 who will talk you through the process.
We always welcome feedback, if you have any comments about the updated search function please email firstname.lastname@example.org
