Community Grants

Community Grants


Blaby District Community Grants scheme supports the voluntary and community sector to develop and strengthen community facilities and activities.

Working in association with Westleigh Partnerships, Everyone Active and Blaby District Youth Council we have been able to expand our offer to the local community.

The following grants are available:

Capital Grants - up to £3,000 (anything over £500, 50% match funding is required)

Revenue Grants - up to £750 (anything over £500, 50% match funding is required)

Everyone Active - up to £500

Youth Grants - up to £1,000


An online application form for each of the grants can be found below. 

Please note that these forms cannot be saved during completion to be edited at a later time.  It is important that you read the guidance notes carefully before applying to ensure that you meet the criteria. 

See our case studies page for examples of some successful projects.

If you have applied to the grants scheme before then we will not necessarily require all of the additional paperwork so please check before sending anything in.

All grant recipients will be expected to comply with periodic checks and complete and return our monitoring form at the end of a project, including providing copies of invoices showing the expenditure on the project as well as any evidence of the intended outcomes being achieved.
