The Building Stronger Communities Fund

Do you want to get something going in your community? Do you have a good idea for making your area a better place to live?

 

The Building Stronger Communities Fund could help. The fund is available for groups of individuals or community organisations with an idea to benefit their local area, where a small grant would really help to get it off the ground.

 

Grants of up to £1,500 are available as a one-off payment. Groups of individuals, or community organisations with an income of less than £50,000 a year, can apply. You do not have to be a constituted group or registered charity to apply. And you do not need a bank account to apply – your local Community and Voluntary Sector association can help by holding the funds for you (see contact details below).
