Amber Valley Borough Council reports £6.5 million in funding gained through Idox’s GRANTfinder service.

Manchester, United Kingdom, August 22, 2015 --( Amber Valley Borough Council is the latest local authority to report a bumper return on investment from its subscription to Idox’s leading funding service GRANTfinder. Quoting a total of £6.5 million in funding success as a direct result of using the market-leading service, the Council has supported the local community in its growth and economic development, alongside helping groups across the public, private and voluntary and community sectors in their bid for funding.

The Council’s Regeneration and Growth Manager, Stephen Jackson comments:

“Amber Valley Borough Council has been using GRANTfinder since the year 2000. Development of the system over the years has made the task of delivering funding searches for third sector, private sector and public sector so much faster whilst still providing the most up-to-date information.

“The GRANTfinder system provides multi-user access. This has allowed officers from across the council to do funding searches for the groups they have been working with. From Landscape Assistants to Housing Officers, all have been able to use the system to give funding options to groups and individuals they work with.

“Over the past 15 years, GRANTfinder has enabled the Council to work with groups to attract approximately £6.5 million into the communities of Amber Valley. Whether it is a project or group looking for a few hundred or £500,000, GRANTfinder has provided the vital information required.”

Amber Valley Borough Council’s news adds further significance to Idox’s milestone of 30 years as Europe’s leading provider of funding information. It also follows £1 million and over £100,000 reported by clients RCT Homes and Catalyst Stockton-on-Tees respectively over recent months.
