Community and Play Grant funding

We provide grant funding to voluntary and community groups to deliver Community and Play activities. Grant funding is allocated through a commissioning process.

What is Commissioning?

By “commissioning”, we mean the process of identifying the most effective way to deliver our objectives based on a clear sense of what our priorities are, and evidence of what is the best way to achieve them.

BCC is seeking to grant fund Community and Play activities which are commissioned against the criteria set out in the below prospectuses.
