All groups must be ‘not for profit’ and/or charitable. Unfortunately, we are unable to fund individuals, sole traders, statutory organisations (e.g. local councils, schools, NHS etc) and private businesses.

We're offering grants of up to £3,000 to help fund a project, community initiative or purchase a piece of equipment. Sports Clubs can apply for sports equipment, a maximum of £1000

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

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

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