Small Grants Scheme

  • Grants of up to £1066 available
  • Open to constituted groups, charities and social enterprises
  • ​Two rounds of grants awarded in each financial year

A Big Local Small grant can be used for a range of projects or purposes that will provide clear benefit to the Big Local area and people living in it.  

We are keen to support Big Local residents taking steps to solve or alleviate neighbourhood problems, and groups who wish to provide beneficial services to other residents.  If you have an idea that might be delivered with some grant funding but are not sure how to take it forward please contact Jan Papworth.  We can provide support to help you get things started.

In 2018/19, £20,000 will be available and will be awarded in two rounds.
