These intuitive yet easy-to-use funding search platforms allow organisations and individuals to find out what funding is available to them in a few clicks

Open 4 Funding provides a suite of public-facing funding search portals designed for organisations who support the local business and voluntary sector communities. It enables local groups and businesses to ‘self serve’ and search for their own funding at the point they need it, removing the requirement for any involvement from the host organisation but still allowing it to capture statistics on areas of interest in the local community and measure return on investment.
