National Association for Voluntary and Community Action (NAVCA): A network of 350 Councils for Voluntary Service (CVS) which help local community groups in setting up, running and funding their work. Most of them have funding advisors that provide training, one-to-one advice on how to raise money and a funding alert service. Find your local office on the NAVCA website. Some local councils have funding advisors too. Also contact your local NAVCA branch (as above).
