Grants for community projects
Community Projects fund
Capital grants for village and community halls and other community facilities such as children's play areas.
Grants will be awarded between £1,000 and £10,000, up to 25% of a project's total cost. Applicants are expected to raise the remainder from other sources, including at least a 10% contribution from the local area, and to work closely with their local district councillor(s).

After reading the criteria, if you believe your project could be eligible, please contact us using the details below to discuss what information we will require (this could be quotes for building work/supplies, planning permission, evidence of contributions from other parties, etc. and will differ on a project by project basis.)
