Funding sources newsflash

(adapted from an email from Maureen Thompson of Local Community Planning)

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.
