Strategic Grants

Our Strategic Grants programme provides grants for one or more years, ranging from £5,000 to £50,000 for successful applications.

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. Only one application per organisation or partnership will be considered per year.

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

How to apply

Applications for grants are currently closed.

Our Strategic Grants awards will be announced in March 2024. Funding will be available from April 2024.

Contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss an outline proposal. Contact details below.
