This Funding should be worth a look – it’s run by “niace” and is for between 10 and 75 thousand pounds.  I think all community cafes and Third Places should be eligible because so much informal adult learning take place already in these kind of spaces.   The fund is open for applications until 12 noon, Friday 10 June 2011.
