Where do you get the grant information from?
There is a wide variety in the amount of information available from grant to grant. We share whatever information available to us; in some instances, this is as little as grant or fund objectives, amount available and a solicitor’s address for applications to be sent to. On the other end, the larger funders may have pages of guidance and information that we link to. We get our information from a variety of sources:
- Information shared with us directly from funders
- Research we undertake, and now
- Funders managing their own profiles on Funding Wales
Throughout 2022, we will be working to get more and more funders managing their own profiles and keeping their fund information up-to-date and accurate. This will not be applicable to all funders on Funding Wales (there are currently over 800), some of whom do not have full time staff.
