New website offers charities access to government grants

A website has been set up to help charities access £128m of funding from four central government departments.

The single portal contains information and downloadable application forms for grants from the Department for Education and Skills, the Department of Health, the Home Office and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister.

It is planned that by April 2004, registered organisations will be able to apply for grants online.

Voluntary sector minister Fiona Mactaggart described the project as "part of a more modern relationship between government and the voluntary and community sector."

Alison Baxter, director of information and communications at the Directory of Social Change, said the site would make a big difference to organisations looking for government support. "It is often difficult to know where to start when it comes to government funding programmes. This website will enable groups to search under a range of criteria," she said.
