What's it all about?

This programme is now closed for applications

Under our Community Voice programme, we made £12 million available to support citizens to have a greater influence over policies and decisions affecting their community; to build the capacity of citizens to engage in planning and running services and projects that respond to their communities’ needs and advance community benefit.

This programme funded portfolios of projects led by County Voluntary Councils (CVC’s) . CVC’s were expected to develop a portfolio of between 5 and 10 community projects as part of their application for funding. Each project helped local communities to have their voices heard.
