In celebration of our national saint’s day, Tees Valley Rural Action and Redcar and Cleveland Voluntary Development Agency are delighted to announce the return of GrantFinder for voluntary sector organisations based and operating in Redcar and Cleveland.

Following the unexpected discontinuation of the previous GrantFinder portal, funded by the local authority, we have worked together since February this year with IDOX to find a route by which we could bring back this service to benefit the communities that we all support and serve.

The Redcar Fund Seekers portal, powered by IDOX GrantFinder, is an open, self-service grant portal that gives you access to the thousands of grant opportunities from national, regional and local funders from the public sector to private charitable foundations and corporate sponsors.

The portal is highly customisable to your needs and can be setup to find and send you funding opportunities that are just right for you, allowing you to slay the proverbial funding dragon and make sure that you’re only putting effort into those funding applications where you are most likely to be successful.

This is a free service, brought to you by a unique partnership of local infrastructure organisations, with the sole request that in order for us to continue to advocate for this free provision you share with us tales of your successful funding bids, as well as those that miss the mark, so we can advocate to funders as to how valuable this service is.

Sign up for your free account today by visiting and access additional support by visiting either or

Best Wishes,

Peter Neal, CEO, RCVDA and Rita Lawson, CEO, TVRA
