Don’t try to shape a project to fit the rules of a funding programme. Focus on what you want to achieve in your community, and the best way to do it.
Our funding programmes give you flexibility to apply for the amount of money you need to deliver your project, in a timeframe that suits you.
If your idea can be delivered within 12 months then apply to our Awards for All programme for between £300 to £10,000.
If you need more time and more money, then apply to People and Communities or Empowering Young People. Grants of between £10,000 and £500,000 are available and you can choose any length of time between one and five years to deliver your project.
Awards for All supports projects bringing about positive change, improving people’s lives and strengthening community activity.
People and Communities is for projects helping people to make changes that improve their lives, and helping communities to build on their strengths and share learning.
Empowering Young People supports projects giving young people aged 8 to 25 the ability to overcome the challenges they face. These projects will enable more young people to have: the skills they need for the future; better relationships with support networks and communities; and/or improved health and wellbeing.
There is flexibility to fund a wide range of activities, it just depends on what the people in your community need.
Talk to and involve the people you want to help at every stage of your project. Their experience will help you to shape your idea into the best project to help them thrive.
We will work with you to support you to make an application. Talk to us about your project idea to get feedback and advice by ringing 028 9055 1455.
