Covid-19 Small Grants Programme

** Please note that this fund closed on 22 May. No further applications will be accepted**

We've made a total of £75,000 available to distribute in grant funding to community / VCS organisations running local initiatives to help with the Covid-19 response and other funding pressures brought about by the pandemic at a local level.

The Small Grants Programme is aimed at supporting very local initiatives. Many communities have begun initiatives to help people who are finding it difficult to cope with the current situation. This programme will provide financial support to help these initiatives take off and be sustained throughout the coronavirus crisis. Additionally, some community facilities and village halls will be facing lost income during this time, so we want to help ensure that they're sustained as well.

The maximum grant available through the Small Grants Programme is £500 per grant.

Is there any other funding available?

Yes, there are other sources of funding. As and when we become aware of these, we will add their details below.
