Area committee funding

Groups of local residents or voluntary groups can apply to our area committees for funding for projects, activities or services.

The priorities for area committee community grants specifically focus on reducing social and economic inequality for disadvantaged residents. Projects or activities should benefit a specific community or people living in a particular area.

Councillors decide on grant applications once per year, at an area committee meeting in the spring. Our ward map can help you work out which area committee your group should apply to.

We are currently accepting funding applications for projects that will take place between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021.

2020/21 funding

Read our information pack to find out whether your group and activity is eligible. We encourage you to discuss your potential bid with us if we haven’t funded it before. Note the strict deadlines for applications.

2019/20 funding

Most of this funding has been spent – there is a small amount of funding left for the West/ Central area. If you think your group and activity might be eligible for a small bid, or for further information, contact us to discuss it.
