There are many funding sources which provide support for projects but they open and close throughout the year, often with tight timescales so you really have to be prepared to apply.
The BVA team have compiled a large and varied list of available grants and funds from numerous sources for its members.
Note that some schemes have periods when funding is not available whilst the funder reviews their criteria and target areas, so check out their website or give them a call for the latest position.
