Small Grant Schemes 2012 - 2013

Press Release: 26/04/2012


The Winchester City Council 2011/2012 Small Grant Scheme is now open for applications. A total of £15,000 is available for activities and projects during 2012-2013.

Grants of up to £500 are available to 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 five priorities from the Winchester District Sustainable Community Strategy:

  • Promoting the wellbeing of older people
  • Improving access to services
  • Reducing the district's carbon footprint
  • Improving quality of life in the Stanmore neighbourhood, Winchester
  • Improving quality of life in the Winnall neighbourhood, Winchester

All activities/projects must be for the benefit of residents within the Winchester District.

There will be two rounds of grant awards with the following closing dates (we will aim to make decisions as quickly as possible for those planning Jubilee celebrations or other initiatives early in the summer):

4 May 2012 (for activities taking place June - October 2012)

7 September 2012 (for activities taking place November 2012 - March 2013)
