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 Countryside Properties, 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

Application Process

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.

If you have applied to the grants scheme before then we will not necessarily require all of the additional paperwork so please check before submitting an application.

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.
