We operate a number of grant aid programmes and provide information on other opportunities available:

Community Chest

Following the completion of this year's Community Chest application, decision and award process, we have an amount of £7,000 remaining from a total of £60,000 to allocate. We are therefore running a second round.

The Community Chest is targeted towards small organisations and the maximum award is £5,000 or 50% of the total cost of the project, whichever is the lower amount. Successful applicants must be able to demonstrate that they are able to spend the awarded money before 31 March 2018.

If you wish to apply, please complete and submit the application form and return it by 15 September 2017.

Applications will be considered on 18 September 2017 and applicants will be notified by 2 October 2017.
