Voluntary and community organisations working in Crawley can now apply online for strategic grants of £5,000 or more from Crawley Borough Council.

This funding programme aims to support local voluntary and community groups. Projects and services must meet the council’s priorities for funding.

The council awards one-off and regular grants to organisations for new or existing activity that will benefit the people of Crawley and demonstrate well-defined outcomes.

Proposals selected for funding, including match funding or a contribution, will be able to provide a local project or service supported by the council from April 2024. The council is particularly interested in applications for support to help with the priorities identified in the funding policy.

Organisations intending to apply should read the policy and contact the council to discuss an outline proposal. They must also apply online no later than Friday 29 December.

We are proud to offer more funding support to not-for-profit organisations working in Crawley. The charities and community groups funded will provide a range of support in the borough to help residents and groups in need. Also, if your community group has a new project idea, or has not previously applied, you may be interested in applying to our small grants scheme.
