Tyne & Esk Rural Communities Development Fund has announced free access to funding information for local charities, voluntary sector organisations and businesses in rural East Lothian and Midlothian.

The Tyne & Esk Local Action Group, which receives funding from the Scottish Government, has taken a subscription to Grant Finder. The website is a free resource with information on hundreds of grant funders nationwide, including what they fund, how much they give, and how to apply. 


The Grant Finder funding database covers local, national, and international sources of funding and is supported by a dedicated team of expert researchers who update daily on thousands of funding sources including charitable trusts, societies, research councils, national government and corporate sponsors. It has recently been upgraded for easier use on mobile devices too.


If you are involved in a business, charity or voluntary group in East Lothian or Midlothian, you can use this tool completely free just by registering on the Grant Finder website.


More information about Tyne & Esk Rural Communities Development Fund is available on their website. Look out for more information on the re-launch of the fund, which will be happening later in the summer. The eligible area covers rural East Lothian and Midlothian excluding the urban areas of Musselburgh and Dalkeith but including Wallyford and Whitecraig and Dalkeith Country Park.
