Voluntary and community organisations in the town can now apply for Crawley Borough Council’s community grants.

Our new strategic grants programme aims to support local voluntary and community groups with grants of £5,000 or more, if they meet the council’s priorities for funding and apply successfully. Funding will be available from April 2022.

The council awards one-off and recurring grants of up to three years to organisations with a successful bid for new or existing activity that will benefit the people of Crawley and demonstrate their service’s outcomes.

We are proud to offer this support to voluntary and community organisations working in Crawley. The charities and groups funded do an incredible amount of work in the borough to help make a difference in the community.

Cabinet member for Community Engagement

Crawley Borough Council
