Please see below our January Newsflash focussing on grants for groups supporting women and children/young people. We are also promoting the excellent edinburgh4community website which helps show funding sources relevant to your own projects. This is provided by our Libraries Service.
There is a short YouTube video showing how to do a search.
You may also be interested in looking at previous monthly Newsflashes. Please have a look at http://www.edinburghnp.org.uk/about-nps/funding/external-funding-updates/
