With new funding opportunities available, we are fast approaching £2 million committed through the Third Sector Framework to local VCSE organisations. Learn more and how you can apply here...

The Third Sector Framework is a way of allocating funding to locally-rooted third sector organisations in the Wakefield District. The Framework has been designed in partnership between Nova, Wakefield Council, Wakefield CCG and Young Lives Consortium.

The aim of the Framework is to achieve balanced distribution of funding in the District.

As work on the Third Sector Framework develops, more funders are committing money and supporting this innovative approach, so begin registering your organisation today!

There is one Third Sector Framework fund accepting applications:

1. Open Access Youth Provision Grant - application deadline: Monday 30 May
