This year we will be funding more organisations than we ever have before and we will still be spreading this funding out far and wide across the country. Last year we expanded our eligibility criteria which will remain this year. In previous years, funding had to go towards projects that were delivering sports or physical activities. But this year funding can go towards any of the following projects:

  • Improving mental wellbeing
  • Enabling community participation in the arts
  • Preventing or reducing the impact of poverty
  • Supporting marginalised groups and promoting equality
  • Improving biodiversity and green spaces
  • Enabling participation in physical activity
  • Responding to the climate emergency and promoting sustainability
  • Increasing community access to outdoor space


To make an application, simply log in to your Localgiving account and click on the ‘My Grants’ section on the left hand side of your dashboard. We strongly encourage you to make your application ASAP to ensure that you don’t miss out as applications are marked on a first come, first served basis.

The application process is short and simple, taking ten minutes to complete. Each organisation may only apply once in 2022.

Organisations must either be in their first year of operation or have an annual income under £250,000. Funding can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work.

Please note that schools are eligible to apply if they are a registered charity. Groups in Northern Ireland are not eligible to apply for this funding.

If you have been awarded a Magic Little Grant in previous years, you will need to have completed and returned your monitoring forms for those years before you can receive another grant.

"Just to say a huge thanks ... I am looking forward to progressing with this project thanks to your support, advice and guidance"
