Support organisations (advice, support, funding)


Welcome to our database of support organisations, for all churches, chapels and meeting houses across the UK.

You can search by topic (tag) or location.

You can also refine the list by organisation type, BUT please bear in mind that this is the main business of the organisation and not their sole business. They may do a range of activities and offer support in a variety of areas so please search by topic (tag) if possible. For example: not all funders will come up if you choose 'funding organisation' from this list as some organisations may offer grant funding but only as a part of their wider activities.

Once you have brought up an organisation, you can simply click on the topic (tag) at the bottom of the page to find all other organisations similarly tagged.

If you have any questions or can't find the information you need, please email us
