Coronavirus (COVID-19):

Coronavirus remains a serious health risk. It’s important to stay cautious and help protect yourself and others. Please continue to follow national government advice.

Who can apply, what for and how?

Un-constituted and grassroots community groups can apply to the fund to support activity that will enable their community to carry out localised activities, such as cultural events, sports & recreational activities, street parties, picnics and community celebrations.

Projects will need to show alignment with one or more of the following themes:

  • Getting Active – encouraging communities to get out and get active by participating in sports and recreational activities.
  • Ready, Steady, Fun – delivering community projects to ensure your local area is Games ready, and hosting community celebrations to develop active citizenship and reduce loneliness and social isolation.
  • Celebrating Culture – developing community led cultural events and initiatives that encourage intergenerational activities. Proposed schemes must harness the power of culture to bring people together, celebrate their identities, and the culture, heritage and stories of their communities.
