This funding aims to support communities to improve the places in which they live and the wellbeing of those most in need.
Please note: from now until the end of 2019 we will be changing some of our internal systems to improve the experience of applying for and using our grants. While we do this we expect it may take us longer than usual to process applications. It could take up to 6 months for us to tell you our final decision for grants up to £150,000.
The success rate for this funding is 72%. This is based on decisions made in the 6 months period up to 30 September 2018. Please read our blog for more information on success rates.
We will fund organisations to deliver work that achieves the following outcomes:
- Everyone in the community has the opportunity to influence and get involved in community-led activity.
- People in the community are better connected and work together to improve their well-being.
We also want to fund work that is people-led, connected, and strengths-based. We call these our three approaches. Find out more about what that means in the three approaches section of our website.
