Frequently asked questions about bfunded

Is bfunded an organisation?

No, bfunded is a partnership - a group of different organisations working together to run a funding information service for groups in Bradford district.

Can my group get funding from bfunded?

No, we do not have any funding to give grants.

The bfunded website is here to help you find funding from local and national funders.

What about funding advice?

Funding for specialist one-to-one funding advice for community groups in Bradford district ended in September 2011.

Since then, the voluntary organisation support officers have been covering some of this work, focusing on getting smaller community groups ready for funding.

Advice for development workers who are giving funding advice to community groups is available.

I used to get emails from the funding advisors network (FAN) - can I still get this funding information?

Yes, sign up for the bfunded funding news emails (free service).  This replaced the FAN email network in September 2011 and provides funding news relevant to community groups in Bradford district.  RSS feeds of this information are also available.
