Strategic Grants

Our new Strategic Grants programme provides grants ranging from £5,000 to £50,000.

Registered charities, community interest companies, voluntary organisations and community groups that meet the eligibility criteria can apply for funding. We also invite proposals from organisations working together in partnership.

We particularly welcome applications from emerging groups and organisations seeking to develop new activities in response to clearly identified local needs.

How to apply

The Strategic Grants programme is now open for online applications until 4 January 2022. Grant awards will be announced in March 2022 and funding will be available from April 2022.
