If you have a great idea to help your local community or you are part of a group who requires some help we can assist you with obtaining grants and funding.
The grants and funds we have are listed below. You can also view our How to access funding from whg leaflet for more information.
Community First is an initiative that provides local communities with the means to address their own priorities.
Panels have been set up for 10 local areas which will look at projects within the area and then decide which ones to submit to the Community Development foundation for approval.
It is a matched fund programme, which means that every £1 provided in funding must be matched by a similar amount of in-kind donations (donations of cash, services, free products or volunteer time) and funding will be allocated to have an impact on the local priorities as agreed by the Panel.
Groups can apply for between £250 and £2500 for a one-year period; they can re-apply each year.
