Our Community Chest small grants programme has been running for the past six years. To date, we have awarded 33 Community Chest grants to community groups and organisations who support residents of all ages living in the Big Local area. 

In our final Community Plan, we will continue inviting local community groups and organisations to apply for grants of up to £1,000.  We will also be expanding our Community Chest small grants programme to introduce two new funding streams for individual residents and young people aged 12 -18 years old.

Have you got a great idea that would benefit your local community? Would you like to develop a new activity, plan a community event or tackle a local grot-spot? Share your ideas with Big Local and we may offer you a grant of up to £1,000 to help put your ideas into action! The application process is really easy and we can offer support to anyone who would like to apply.
