Grants are open for applications

We currently have several different opportunities to apply for funding to improve our local area. Our grants are based on our three main aims:  improving outdoor spaces, strengthening the community and supporting enterprise.

We have grants available for large and small projects that share these aims, so whether you’re part of a local organisation with big plans, or you’d like to make your street a bit more attractive, or get to know your neighbours better, we can almost certainly help you to do it. Find out more about the money available on our grants pages.

Make your area greener

Got a green project that you want to get off the ground? Our Green Grants have opened for 2020. You can apply for up to £1,000 to make improvements to outdoor spaces in the William Morris ward. We know that having more greenery around makes people feel better about themselves and the place they live in, so if you’ve got a green idea you’d like to make happen, check out how to apply – you need to do it by 3 April 2020.
