SPARK Small Grant Scheme 2016 – 2017


With thanks to funding from ESCC and Lewes Town Council, we’re really pleased to announce another small grant scheme this year, to support the core delivery of activities that meet the needs of children and young people aged 0–19 in East Sussex.


Applications of up to £1,000 are invited from all current SPARK member groups regardless of size and annual income and you are also welcome to apply if you have received a small grant in the past. However you must be able to demonstrate clearly in your application the direct benefits of the grant to young people and your application will be strengthened if young people have been involved in your bid.

Grants are available for the running costs of your organisation (heat, light, rent, etc.) or the purchase of small items of equipment that will support activities.  We will also consider contributing towards the costs of running activities for young people. We cannot fund core staffing costs.

The closing date for applications is the end of the day on 31 October 2016.  Your organisation must be a member of SPARK and have a minimum of £5m Public Liability Insurance.

The grant will need to be spent by the end of March 2017. You will be required to complete a brief evaluation report when the grant has been spent.  Please see attached the conditions in full and an application form.
