Community Grants

Community Grants are available for all!

The RiverLife project wants to support local groups and people to deliver a wide range of benefits, these are the core aims of our project. We want the grants to be easy to apply for and accessible for all community groups. There are 4 types of grants on offer, which increase in effort required for application corresponding to the amount of funding that is available.

Action on the Ground Grant - Up to £500

Small grants available to groups, you don’t have to be formerly affiliated as community group or have group bank account. These grants are designed to give you and members of the community the power to make or change something for the better. Approval is quick and reporting on use of the grant is simple.

Project Package Grant - up to £1000

These grants are aimed at formalised community groups or organisations that specifically want to improve their local environment or to capture a project or community day by film. We supply staff or contractors to help you achieve what you want from the project, this is perfect for smaller community groups that can find resourcing skilled help time consuming.

Own Project Grant - up to £1000

These grants are aimed at formalised community groups or organisations that want to complete a project in connection with our core aims of the project (see page 2). Approval is based on how well the core aims are met, with support offered via the project staff to achieve funding for all or part of the project you design.
