Advice & Support

Our Group Development Team provides information on funding opportunities available to the Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector and supports groups to become more sustainable by improving their financial security and capacity.

Funding Search

The Merseyside Funding Information Portal (MFIP) is an online resource that has everything you need to know about funding your charitable or community work, whether you are an individual, a community group, a voluntary organisation, a registered charity or a social enterprise. This also includes information and support in tendering and procurement related opportunities for voluntary bodies.

Funding Surgeries
