East Ayrshire Council can help you discover new funding opportunities for your projects.

We provide a funder search facility that helps you to find out which funder is likely to provide grants best suited to you.

We can also assist you to develop and define your business plan, and put you in touch with experience and support from a variety of sources.

Funding for projects is available from a number of sources including the UK Government, the European Union, charitable trusts and the national lottery. Whether you are eligible will depend on the nature of your organisation/group, its activities and the type and scale of the proposed project.

To allow us to assess the level of support you require please complete the outline proposal form opposite.

The external funding service also runs regular funding advice surgeries throughout the area. If you would like to reserve a place at our next available surgery, please indicate this on the outline proposal form.

The external funding service cannot provide advice on accessing funding for individuals, unconstituted organisations or profit making businesses. However, the following contacts will be able to provide further information:
