Community Chest Grant Programme

Small grants for small groups in Sharrow and surrounding areas

The Community Chest grant programme is designed to support small groups, established or newly formed, working in and around the Sharrow area. The grant programme will run for 3 years, starting in 2019 and ending in 2021

There are will be two grant rounds per year, with two grants of up to £250 and one grant of up to £500 being awarded in each round.

Grant funding must contribute to:

  • Activities which involve people from the local area (Sharrow, Abbeydale, Lowfield, Nether Edge)
  • Activities which take place in the local area
  • Activities which have clear benefit to people in the local area

Priority will be given to applicants who can show that the funded activity contributes to ongoing development of their work. We are particularly interested in supporting groups that want to build community involvement, community voice, confidence and skills.
