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.
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.
Our Multicultural Grants are also currently open for applications – and it’s a great time to start planning multi-faith and multicultural events for 2020.
Finally, we’ve got a new member of staff: Helen is our new communications and admin officer, joining Gabriel in the Big Local office. She’ll be out and about around William Morris ward meeting people and learning about what’s going on.
Do get in touch with us if you’re interested in finding out more or getting involved with the Big Local.
