Capacity Building Grants Scheme

Grants of up to £1,000 are available to help small, locally based and run community organisations with an annual income of £250,000 or less to become stronger and better able to deliver projects that bring about lasting change.

These grants will also support organisations who have been impacted by COVID-19 to help begin a process to rebuild and be ready and better able to meet community need.

The range of activities supported include:

  • Developing better organisational governance through training trustees
  • Reviewing or updating policies and procedures
  • Increasing understanding of the needs of your beneficiaries
  • Increasing organisational delivery capacity
  • Developing strategies to support rebuilding.

Capacity building grants are available as a rolling programme with decisions made within 6 weeks of the application. Funding should be spent within 12 months of receiving the award.
