We are not a direct funder. However, using our extensive knowledge we are able to support groups to access grant funding. We work closely with South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau (SYFAB) to direct groups to the right places and support applications.

My name is Lorna Lewis and I am the new Barnsley Funding Development Worker for SYFAB.

I have worked in Barnsley for about 20 years in different roles, most of them with a community development focus.
