Come along to learn more about the Third Sector Framework and how to apply...

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.
