East Devon District Council is re-launching its funding advice web pages at www.eastdevon.gov.uk/grants . These pages contain lots of information about funding opportunities, with details of organisations you can contact for advice about your particular project.

Grants from local and national organisations are available for more than you might think, including:

* Environmental projects

* Arts and dance

* Churches

* Community buildings

* Sports groups and facilities

* Projects and groups involving children and young people

* Benefits and grants for individuals

* Museums and galleries

* Energy efficiency

* People and communities

Councillor Jill Elson, EDDC's Portfolio Holder for Communities said: "This is a very useful extra resource for community and voluntary groups throughout the district. Now it's much easier for them to find out how they can access funding to carry on and improve all the good work they are doing in East Devon."

Contact Jamie Buckley, Empowerment and Funding Officer at EDDC on 01395 517569 for further information. Jamie would be happy to anwer questions and give advice to anyone who doesn't have access to a computer.
