Community Organisations and Associations can apply for a grant for up to one year to contribute to the annual running costs of your community centre. You can apply for a maximum of £5,000. The aim of the funding is to help Community Organisations with their financial planning.
This fund is to contribute to the everyday running costs of community centres such as wages, utility bills, rent etc.
This fund cannot be used for refurbishment or building costs - please use the large grants fund for these types of projects.
Community Building Fund Grants will be for a maximum of 50% of the funding target unless your Community Centre is in one of our 20 target communities in which case you can apply for up to 80% of your annual running costs.
Applicants will need to demonstrate that there is community support for their project.
