Running a campaign can require a lot of resource, mostly time, but there are occasions when some funding can really help make a difference to your campaign, whether it’s paying for hall hire, leaflet or banner printing, website support, train fares, etc.

The following are sources of funding for campaign materials and activities, but not usually for staff time or professional or legal advice:

National

Lush Charity Pot – Grant range £100 – 10,000, but most average £2,000 – 4,000 (staff posts and professional advice are not supported)

Roadblock – gives small grants to groups fighting road schemes (staff posts and professional advice are not supported) – contact us at Transport Action Network for information about this funding

Regional

Mid-Counties Cooperative Campaigns Fund – funds campaigning activities both within its core area (Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Buckinghamshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, the West Midlands, Wiltshire and Worcestershire) and wider as some aspects of its business are national.
