Community Organisations Support Grants
Please note the grant scheme has now closed. This is an archived update.
The council recognises the enormous contribution made by the voluntary, community and faith sector to our communities; this contribution has been brought to light more than ever during the Covid-19 pandemic and the response of the sector during this time has been invaluable. We also appreciate the increased pressure that a range of community-based organisations are under during this time, responding to reduced income and increased need.
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been delivering a package of support to community organisations. As part of this package of support, we are now launching the Community Organisations Support Grants programme. We want to encourage you to apply for the funding if your organisation is eligible and in need of it. The funding is for unavoidable running and core operational costs arising from Covid-19 and is not intended to pay for services, including services responding directly to the impacts of Covid-19.
The Community Organisations Support Grants are open to community organisations whose operations have been difficult to adapt to lockdown, including service delivery or income-generating activity, including:
- Charities and voluntary sector organisations
- Social enterprises (not in shared workspaces)
- Community organisations (which are not charities or voluntary sector organisations)
- Places of worship and faith groups
