The Regional Grants programme makes small grants of up to £2,000 to help organisations based in local communities to deliver activities that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to.
The regional grants programme supports small locally based organisations, who make a difference within their own communities. Any not for profit organisation can apply, however, larger organisations with a turnover in excess of £300,000 are unlikely to be successful
They are interested in projects that improve resilience within your community of interest. This can include sessional activities/respite support, equipment for sessional activities, trips and residential breaks. Also interested in new approaches and innovative ideas as well as sustainable approaches to supporting your community of interest.
All projects most support a community of interest, ie people who are:
– Disabled or suffering chronic illness
– Living in poverty
– Voluntary carers
– Isolated older people
– Other demonstrable significant need
There is a list of exclusions on the website!
