Open4Croydon is a comprehensive database of over 2,000 UK and European Union funding initiatives available to VCSE sector groups. Croydon Council and Croydon Voluntary Action both subscribe to Open4Croydon; if you want us to search the database for a grant for your organisation, please contact Yvonne Gaye or Carole Short, details below.
Open4Croydon allows organisations to conduct their own online searches on Open4Croydon, free of charge. You will have to answer a few simple questions about your organisation and the project you wish to undertake. Once you have done this, Open4Croydon will give you an overview of the funding schemes which may be available for your project.
Details of your Open4Croydon search results will be automatically emailed to Carole Short, at Croydon Voluntary Action, who may then forward any relevant queries to Yvonne Gaye at Croydon Council. Carole and Yvonne may be able to help you follow up your Open4Croydon search.
This service is only available to groups whose activities will take place in the London Borough of Croydon. For activities that will not take place in the London Borough of Croydon, please contact the borough or local authority where your activities will be based.
