Grants are available to established groups, with a total annual income of under £500,000, to fund community-support, arts, education and heritage projects addressing local issues within the Foundation’s priority areas.
Funding can be used towards general running costs including core costs, salaries and projects costs or capital expenditure on buildings or essential equipment.
The following levels of support are available:
The Foundation now operates a rolling programme, and applications can be made at any time.
