Round 1 (2017) is now open and closes on 3rd March 2017 with results being announced no later than 28th April 2017.
The Local Community Projects Fund helps organisations based in local
communities to deliver projects or provide equipment to people in need
at the heart of our local communities. The programme is administered by
seven charity committees throughout England, Wales and Scotland. Please
carefully read the following guidelines before starting an application.
Who do we support?
Local Community Projects Funding is offered to organisations
supporting people in need. Any not for profit organisation can apply,
however, larger organisations with a turnover in excess of £300,000 are
unlikely to be successful.
What type of project can we support?
We are interested in projects that improve resilience within your
community of interest. This can include sessional activities/respite
support, equipment for sessional activities, trips and residential
breaks. We are also interested in new approaches and innovative ideas as
well as sustainable approaches to supporting your community of
interest. We do not fund running costs or continuation of existing and
All projects must support a community of interest, ie people who are:
- Disabled or suffering chronic illness
- Living in poverty
- Voluntary carers
- Isolated older people
- Other demonstrable significant need
Where can we make grants?
We are more likely to make grants to local organisations based near
Greggs shops. Please use the shop locator on the Greggs website to find
your nearest shop.
