Do you need funding for your group?

Do you need funding for your group?

Our challenge is to make a positive change in Wiltshire and Swindon by helping local groups make life better for their communities.  We want to help you to support those who need it most.

You can apply grants for project or core costs and overheads for:

Foundation Grants

Apply for up to £5,000 for one year’s funding, or up to £3,000 a year for two or three years.  Funding will go to projects where the majority of people who will benefit experience disadvantage either economically, socially, geographically or physically.

The Office of Police & Crime Commissioner Grants

Apply for up to £3,000 for one year’s funding.  Applications are welcomed from groups who seek to bring communities together to tackle local issues around anti-social behaviour, crime, drug and alcohol related crime, reducing re-offending, violence against women and girls or youth crime.

Comic Relief Small Grants

Grants available up to around £1,000-2,000 to support work where there is clear evidence of a sustained beneficial impact on people’s lives who are excluded or disadvantaged through low income, rural or social isolation, age, disabilities, race, sexuality or gender. Priority is to be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage that have a clear understanding of the needs of their community and are undertaking actions as a means of addressing these needs.

Public Health & Wellbeing Grants

Apply for up to £4,000 for one year for groups who can demonstrate a clear link to improved mental or physical health outcomes that will result from their project, for example, reducing childhood obesity or helping adults to adopt healthier lifestyles, helping to combat loneliness, isolation and other factors which contribute to poor mental health, supporting older people to have more active and fulfilling lives, promoting the use of community green spaces, assets and infrastructure for exercise and wellbeing or reducing drug and alcohol abuse.
