Funding Opportunity – Local Sustainability Fund – initial deadline 26th July

Delivered by the Big Lottery Fund on behalf of the Office for Civil Society, the Local Sustainability Fund aims to help medium sized Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprises (VCSE) organisations to secure a more sustainable way of working by providing funding and support to help them review and transform their operating models. The Office for Civil Society has made £20 million in funding available. Find out more here.

The first step in applying is to complete a diagnostic tool on the VCSE Diagnostics site, where a copy of the Guidance Notes can be found. The deadline for completion is 26 July 2015.

We’d be grateful to hear from you if you decide to complete the diagnostic as we may be able to help you progress your plans and support you if you’re invited to make a second stage application in early September.
