Local Grants Forum
The Local Grants Forum is a partnership of national organisations, formed in 2007. It campaigns to protect grants for local voluntary organisations and community groups.
5 ways to protect grant funding (Oct 2012)
They have produced a leaflet, 5 ways to protect grant funding, to help you promote and protect this vital source of funds. This leaflet will also help you influence your local funders and challenge unfair decisions.
Defending local grants (Nov 2011)
In November 2011 the Forum updated Defending Local Grants which contains details of resources you can use at local level which will help you to convince councillors, commissioning officers and procurement professionals that grants should continue to be used to fund local organisations and groups.
In April 2007 the Forum published Sustaining Grants: Why local grant aid is vital for a healthy voluntary and community sector and thriving local communities.
