Our Funding

Pub is The Hub does not always have funds to be a direct provider of grants or loans for individual diversification projects and we advise that you contact the office for more information about any funding in your area. However we do provide advice help and support at no cost to licensees and seek to work with the local authorities to find the potential funding sources.

We try to work with the local support from rural development agencies, county, borough and district councils and other third sector agencies where small pockets of local funding may exist for the provision of rural services.

Our small team of experienced advisors is supported through a combination of donations from our sponsors and supporters together with in-kind help to run our systems and administration. .

Funding in England has previously been supported by The BIG Lottery Fund – specifically for our Local Community Services Champions initiative. We continue to seek funding to support counties who have expressed an interest in working with us in the future.

The Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund have helped support the Welsh Pub is The Hub Co-operation Project up to November 2014 with 8 Welsh counties.

Our experience tells us that when someone brings up a problem it can usually be dealt with.  We can’t promise to advise on and solve everything, but we will always do our best.

Financial Support

We always tend to be shy of promoting ourselves as we believe it is the hardworking licensees working with their local communities who are the real heroes of Pub is The Hub projects.

However, our great part-time Advisors do need donations to support their day to day work and if we may be a little more forthcoming, any support is always greatly appreciated!
