Community Chest Grant Scheme 2021/22

Following the many successful community-led projects and initiatives that were funded via the COVID-focused Community Chest Grant Scheme last year, the decision has been made to continue with a targeted focus.

As we move into a period of recovery, the Community Chest Grant Scheme will be aimed at small groups and organisations to fund activities, projects and initiatives that demonstrate that they are helping our communities recover from the pandemic.

Therefore, the decision has been made to divert the 2021-22 Community Chest funding of £30,000 to community groups and organisations to help respond to their community’s needs. We are now inviting applications from organisations or groups who require financial help to deliver relevant projects.
