There are two strands:
Micro Grant (up to £750):
Due to successful projects illustrating positive change that can happen with a small pocket of money, moving forward we are offering organisations the opportunity for organisations to apply individually or work together and connect their funding to make a larger impact on positive community change.
It is intended to make this application process simple and responsive through an outline of proposals or presentation to the grants panel. During this process applicants must however confirm that the grant will be spent on activities/equipment aligned with objectives in the funding scope. Successful applicants must also evidence their impact via customer stories, case studies or presentations.
General Grant (between £751 – £5000):
Again we would like to encourage partnership working so two organisations working with allocated general-grants could access a maximum of £10,000 to achieve their goals. To ensure that many organisations could benefit from this opportunity only two organisations can partner together. PLEASE NOTE: this grant ends on 13 October 2021.
