Grants

Small Grants Fund - PLEASE BE AWARE OUR 2016-17 SMALL GRANTS FUND HAS NOW CLOSED FOR APPLICATIONS.  THE 2017-18 SMALL GRANTS FUND WILL OPEN IN APRIL 2017.

We value the work that local informal neighbourhood groups and voluntary organisations do in the community for the benefit of residents.

Our current funding programme closes on 27 January 2017 so there is still time to apply for a grant.  We're offering grants of up to £2,000 to help fund a project, community initiative or purchase a piece of equipment.

You must submit your application at least six weeks before the start of your project or for when your equipment is required.

Decisons are made on a monthly basis and we have two remaining decision dates:

  • 9 January 2017 - we must receive your application no later than 9 December 2016
  • 6 February 2017 - we must receive your application no later than 27 January 2017

Please read the guidance notes and our FAQs for further information on our criteria for funding.

You can also download our example application for ideas on how to complete our form,  read our success stories newsletter or our 2015-16 awards table which has examples of previous projects we have supported.

Should you want to discuss your application in more detail, you can email the commissioning officer.

We recently conducted a small grants fund survey to find out how applicants found our processes.  You can view the headline results and changes we have already put in place here.
