Small Grant Scheme up to £500


Deadline: 12 noon Tuesday 13 June 2017 - Decisions w/c 17 July 2017

This scheme aims to make small grants easily available to local voluntary and community groups. Grants are quick and easy to apply for, and we will offer you advice whenever you need it.

The grants of up to £500 are available for one-off pieces of expenditure if on projects, equipment and other items which will help your organisation to do more, to reach more people, to provide better services or to try something different.

Your organisation needs to be a not-for-profit voluntary organisation, community group or a registered charity running activities or projects that benefit the residents of the Winchester District. Applications are invited from all charitable community and voluntary groups but applicants should note that priority is likely to be given to those organisations that can demonstrate that their project is linked to the delivery of one or more of the Council's Strategy outcomes. Which you will help to meet (see Council Strategy guidance notes below)

  • Delivering quality housing options
  • Improve the health and happiness of our community
  • Improving the quality of the District's environment

Small Grants Application
The  Criteria for the Small Grants programme in 2017-18 can be found below. If you are considering applying please refer to the criteria prior to applying.
Please note that you cannot apply for funding retrospectively. We are rarely able to fund applications in full because of the level of demand, but we do make payments as soon as the awards are confirmed so that you have cash in the bank to spend rather than claiming it back at a later stage.
