15 April 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Launched as part of Boost Drinks' 20th anniversary celebrations, the Choose Now Change Lives programme is offering grants to support selected community groups with delivery of activities for the benefit of people in their local area.

This may include:

  • Community groups that bring the local community together, whether it be through sport, art, music or just generally providing a place for people to come together.
  • Homeless charities that help rough sleepers to find shelter and help provide them with the support they need.
  • Food banks that provide food and essential supplies for families or individuals in crisis.

The programme fund has a total value of £20,000.

In each application round, three groups will be shortlisted, with the overall winner put out to a public vote. Organisations will be notified and the public will cast their votes for the organisation that they would like to receive a grant.

Applications will be accepted from the following:

  • Charities.
  • Community Interest Companies (CICs).
  • Community groups.
  • Lower-tier local authorities.
  • Health authorities.
  • Social housing.
  • Other not-for-profit organisations.

Organisations are invited to bid for grants of between £1,000 and £10,000.
