Neighbourhoods Community Event Funding Applications now closed

Please note that the deadline for this fund has now passed. 


A fund of £2500 per Neighbourhood* is available for voluntary and community sector organisations to deliver a community event. Events need to be delivered between April and September 2022.

*Note that this excludes Well Street Common Neighbourhood as the Well Street Common Neighbourhood Wellbeing Partnership delivered a successful community event in October 2022.

If you are an organisation with broad community reach, strong connections with both statuary and community organisations in your Neighbourhood and with ideas on how to deliver a fun and engaging community event please apply!

The community event should:

  • Be accessible, engaging, and inclusive to all residents
  • Offer residents the opportunity to find out about local services available in their community to improve their health and wellbeing
  • Involve at least 10 local VCS organisations, NHS, and council services who will run engaging activities throughout the day
  • Give residents an opportunity to get more involved in their community

We would particularly encourage applications from grassroots organisations with income under £100k or joint applications from larger organisations working in partnership with a grassroots or community-led group.

Application Process

The deadline for applications is 5pm on 9 February 2022.
We aim to make a decision by 2 March 2022.

Please send your completed application form to

What support can we offer?
