Funding for Groups

The Funding Information and Support Service is one of the many FREE services GVS offers to member groups. Its purpose is to provide funding information, advice and assistance tailored to the specific needs of your group.

Over the years many groups have been supported to successfully obtain funding to enable them to provide vital services and resources that have improved the lives of their beneficiaries. Over £20,000,000 has been raised by groups during this time. See examples of the funding successes.
