Most of our grants we award are between £1,000 – £5,000 and we support voluntary and grassroots organisations that are well-placed to identify and address local needs. Our awards to individuals support young people to develop and improve their life chances.

Whether you are looking for funding for an organisation or an individual you will be asked to submit an application form and your application will be assessed and decisions about funding made by a grants panel.

For further help and advice on the application process, any documentation your group may need or if you need the application form in an alternative format please contact the grants team on 01202 670815 or at
