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 2019 and 31 March 2020.
