Funding

Winter Activites Fund

The Winter Activities Fund is also now open to grant applications, to help community organisations provide the activities and support most needed in their area.  The grant scheme can offer funding towards the costs of additional winter activities such as parent and toddler groups, soup and sandwich nights, wellbeing activities in the local hall, or offering facilities for local residents to enjoy a warm and welcoming space.

Grants will support up to 100% of capital and revenue costs to deliver additional winter activities, including equipment, salary costs, volunteer expenses, energy bills and food.  Funds of £500 to £10,000 are available for revenue projects, and £500 to £2,000 for capital projects.

The fund is open to applications now, and will close for submissions on January 31st for activities to take place before 31st March 2023.
