Community Grants available

Blaby District Council Logo

£30,000 is still available for community groups in Blaby District to access as part of the Council’s Community Grants scheme.

Grants from £500-£4,000 are available for a variety of projects, with some of this year’s funding having helped groups with Personal Protective Equipment, increased running costs and capital projects to improve community facilities.

Since the opening of the 2020/21 grants more than £51,000 has been awarded to sports clubs, charities and community organisations. Changes to the scheme have been made to help voluntary sector organisations through the pandemic and to ensure that more groups than ever can access vital funding.

The scheme is open to all eligible organisations, including projects that do not relate to Covid-19. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 24 February 2021 at 5pm.

A question and answer session will be taking place on Thursday 04 February from 10am-11am on Zoom for any interested organisations to find out more about the grants.

For more information about the Community Grants and to apply online visit the webpage, where there is also more information about the Question and Answer event.
