Grants and Funding News

Funding is available for projects that focus on improving community health and wellbeing, increase participation in arts and physical recreation, or reduce isolation.

Short-term, designated funding is available for new projects, or significant expansions of existing projects, in Great Britain that focus on the 2020 themes to improve community health and wellbeing, increase participation in arts and physical recreation, or reduce isolation.

Grassroots organisations, local charities and non-profit community businesses that are seeking to effect positive change within their local area in England, Scotland and Wales can take the first step in the application process by submitting an online expression of interest.

The funding is for new projects, or significant expansions of existing projects, in Great Britain. The projects can be up to 12 months in length.

In 2020, the Trust will consider projects which relate to:

  • Improving community health and wellbeing

  • Increasing participation in arts and physical recreation

  • Reducing isolation

It is likely that projects will be able to relate to multiple theme, and applicants should choose the theme that is most closely related to the intended outcome of their project.

Grants range from £500 to £20,000. Only registered charities can apply for grants of up to £20,000. The maximum grant for groups that are not formally registered as a charity is £2,000.

There is a two-stage application process.

Stage one applications will be accepted from 21 January to 4 February 2020.

How To Apply

The programme has two funding rounds and an online two-stage application process involving an expression of interest form. Those who are successful at the initial stage will be invited to complete a full application.

The application form will appear online during the stage 1 dates.

The 2020 dates for application are:

  • Round 1 Stage 1: 21 January - 4 February

  • Round 1 Stage 2: 10 March - 24 March

  • Round 2 Stage 1: to be announced

  • Round 2 Stage 2: to be announced

Applicants are urged to read the guidance notes published on the Trust's website before starting the online application form.
