Caerphilly secures £100k in community funding with Idox funding and information service

Caerphilly County Borough Council has announced that it secured £100k in 2017 alone thanks to its investment in Idox funding and information service, GRANTfinder.

The money has enabled the Council to deliver significant health and social care benefits to the local community, with the Idox funding service playing an integral role in identifying vital sources of non-mainstream funding for citizens across South East Wales.

While health and social care provision typically tend to be priority areas, issues such as health improvement and social care resources are also critically important for improving quality of life. By being able to identify, bid for and receive funding in these areas specifically, the Council has taken a proactive approach to health and wellbeing, subsequently minimising the impact on health services through early intervention.

Antony Bolter, Business Support & Funding Manager explains how the Council’s subscription to the Idox online funding platform, GRANTfinder works in practice:

“The GRANTfinder platform allows an authority like ours to sign-up multiple users across all departments, allowing a drill-down to niche interests. Instead of casting a wide net for funds without a plan in place for spending, we can undertake searches in a tactical manner, marrying up our local needs with relevant funding pots.

“The income generated through the use of GRANTfinder has far outweighed the cost of our subscription. We’ve been successful in securing funds for a variety of added-value projects that meet and exceed our priorities.”
