Funding Opportunities

Attached is a funding newsletter received via Southampton City Council. If you click on the Southampton City Council website you can subscribe yourself and receive a monthly update link to a document with lots of funding opportunities.

While not all of them are relevant for young people, or Scouting but some are. Some are area specific too but not all of them. Groups in the County have secured funding to pay for a carer to support additional needs 1:1 by applying for a grant from this link.
