The Big Lottery Fund are offering grants of between £300 and £10,000 for groups to hold one off events or activities which celebrate their local community.
You could celebrate something from your community’s history or a local hero. Or maybe it’s a chance to bring people together to get to know their neighbours better. £3.875m is available for projects in England.
Voluntary and community organisations, schools and statutory organisations can all apply. Higher priority will be given to applications from:
- projects which demonstrate communities coming together to celebrate and share their diverse cultures
- projects which actively bring different generations together.
Celebrate opened for applications on 6 July 2016. Applications will be assessed and awarded on a first come, first served basis. The fund will be closed to new applications when all the money has been awarded.
