London Sport have recently launched a brand new funding search tool to help sports organisations and individuals living and operating in the capital to access what funding grants and bursaries there are available. The tool is very user friendly, enables you to search by local authority area, specifies what each grant can and can’t be used for, you can save searches and also get notifications when new grants are added that suit your needs.
