Voluntary and Community Action Sunderland supports local voluntary and community organisations, and informal user led groups to identify and access funding from a range of different sources.

We will help you to identify the most appropriate funding source for the work you want to do. We will then help you to develop your project ideas, formulate a fundraising strategy and submit funding bids. We also help groups to develop alternative income generation strategies, through sales and marketing.

We provide training and guidance on commissioning processes, and work with local commissioners to make these as fair, transparent and accessible as possible. We bring local groups together and facilitate partnership and consortium development bids so that local groups can take advantage of commissioning opportunities when these arise.
