It’s an exciting time as the UK prepares for #Celebrate2022, a year of celebration and national pride including Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Awards for All England funding is available to support Jubilee themed community-led events on the weekend of 4th-5th
June and throughout 2022.
We can fund lots of different activities on Awards for All England for smaller amounts of funding between £300 and £10,000, and we expect activities that are supporting Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee to be small scale and driven by the community.
By a ‘community’, we mean people:
living in the same area - like a city, town, or street
who share characteristics - like beliefs, values, interests or faith
who can be grouped together in some other way.
Projects could be a one-off event or happen over 2022, such as:
cultural festivals or activities to promote community cohesion and build connections across your community
community events or activities engaging people from different generations and cultures to get to know one another and share experiences
improving local spaces to provide a space for the community to connect to nature
events or activities driven by the community to reduce isolation and help people to socialise again, for example a street party or community cooking event
We recognise that some activities may want or need to be held virtually and that is OK.
We’re unlikely to fund:
activities or an event with no wider community engagement
If you’re thinking of applying, make sure your project still meets what Awards for All England is looking for:
· projects need to involve people and communities from the start, build on people’s strengths and are connected in their community. This short video explains it well - involve your community video
you must spend the money within 12 months of getting it
we will continue to prioritise groups with smaller incomes.
Here are the key things to know:
applications for Jubilee projects should be received no later than 31 March 2022
you cannot apply for Awards for All England funding for a project that you are awaiting a decision from The Platinum Jubilee Fund. You can apply if you have already had an unsuccessful decision, or it is for a different project
