Is your community, voluntary or social enterprise group in need of financial support for a project, service, event or activity that benefits residents across South Gloucestershire?
Our Area Wide Grant (AWG) is currently available and the deadline for submitting applications is midnight on 15 October 2021. This is the second and final round for the financial year 2021/22.
This grant can be used to support community projects, services, events or activities that will benefit residents in at least six of the 14 Community Engagement Forum areas (for more information see www.southglos.gov.uk/cef).
The maximum grant amount is £3,000, although there is flexibility for higher awards for both exceptional circumstances and budget availability.
Cabinet Member for Public Health and Equality of Opportunity, Councillor Franklin Owusu-Antwi said: “Our Area Wide Grants help us to support community organisations that work for residents across South Gloucestershire, including projects that are helping to mitigate against some of the effects of the pandemic. In this year’s first round we were delighted to award almost £40,000 in funding to 25 worthwhile projects across the district.
“I encourage voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations, as well as town and parish councils to apply. The type of projects that could be eligible for funding include those that reduce isolation and exclusion, events that bring communities together, activities that promote health and well-being, or services that address a particular community need.”
All organisations must complete registration details online and have these approved prior to application. For more information please refer to our registration guidance available on our website http://www.southglos.gov.uk/AWG
