Funding Finder search engine

The Funding Finder search engine below provides the opportunity to search grants listed on other CSP websites, as well as Derbyshire Sport's.

Treat the search results with some caution because they may bring up local funds not relevant to Derbyshire. However, it might be worth a quick look to see if it is picking up something new and additional to the suggestions we have listed on our pages.

If you want to find out more detail about some of the funding that is available in the county in the physical activity and sport sphere, take a look at our sectioned guide detailed above and on the side menu.
