To support our businesses during the current COVID-19 crisis, and into the recovery phase, Carlisle City Council is providing free access to Open 4 Business. Open4Business is designed to support businesses locate relevant up to date funding opportunities.

The portal is updated regularly with new local, regional and national funding announcements and can be easily searched by businesses on the basis of their industry, region and business size. The portal then provides information on how to apply for funding and contact funders directly. To search for grants for your business you will first need to register on the Open4Business website

VCSE StrengthChecker

| Return|

Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations make a vital contribution to society, often providing support for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people and communities.

VCSE StrengthChecker has been developed with the aim to help organisations become more resilient so that they can continue to support their beneficiaries in future years.

VCSE organisations in the UK can use this diagnostic tool to analyse their organisation and identify areas that could be developed to improve organisational strength. It is not linked to any funding programmes and it is completely free to use.

Full details can be found at this link here VCSE StrengthChecker
