Cookies

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Funding for your project

The National Park Authority can support your project in a variety of ways including grant searches, funding advice and grant funding. For more information on this support or if you need help understanding any of the contents of this page please contact the External Funding Co-ordinator on 01730-819219 or email grants@southdowns.gov.uk.

In these webpages you will find information on a variety of funding sources ranging from South Downs National Park Authority grants to the Heritage Lottery Fund. There is also a useful links section but we would like to specifically draw your attention to the following websites which may be very useful to your fundraising programme:

  • GRANTfinder is a user-friendly, accurate and professional funding tool which has helped its users to facilitate the securing of millions of pounds’ worth of support.
  • Magic is an interactive mapping tool which you can use to find out which Local Action Group(LAG) or Local Enterprise Area(LEP) you fall into:
    • Once you have clicked “get started” use the Table of Contents filter on the left of the screen to select Administrative GeographiesOther Administrative BoundariesLocal Enterprise Partnership Boundaries(England) and Rural Development Fund Eligibility for LEADER Groups.
    • Then navigate the map to the area where you operate and use the “identify” tool (central “i” icon at the top of the page) to show the name of your LAG and LEP.

We have categorised the various types of funding in the menu to the right. Please note that there are often great overlaps in funding so please do not use the categories definitively, we would recommend having a look through all of the menu options.
