Funding for community groups, charities and businesses

Community groups, charities and businesses may be eligible for grants from various sources including programmes overseen by South Lanarkshire Council.

Funding Scotland

We have teamed up with SCVO's Funding Scotland to provide an advanced online widget funding search for your charity, community group or social enterprise. From small grants to funding for big capital projects, we can help you track down the funding you need to make a difference in your community.

It includes information on over 800 funds and can help you find everything from small grants to funding for big capital projects.

South Lanarkshire Funding Search lists local South Lanarkshire funds as well as Scottish, UK and overseas opportunities. You can also sign up to receive a weekly funding bulletin for South Lanarkshire organisations.

The search does not include funding opportunities for individuals or private businesses.

For general funding advice and support contact our External Funding Team.
