The purpose of the programme is to support projects and activities which are important to a community which benefit local people.
Groups may apply for one Empowering Local Communities grant per year of between £500 and £1,500. Project activities must start or take place before 5 June 2022.
Eligible costs and projects under each theme supported by the programme include the following:
- Building Resilient Communities – Supporting community groups with the equipment, essentials and facilities to enable activity to take place. This might be enhancing what is already available, providing core items or enabling an activity to continue.
- Active Lives – Supporting participation in group physical activities. Whether low or high impact, regardless of age or ability, encouraging people to lead more active lifestyles and for everyone to feel able to participate.
- Seasonal Celebrations & Festivals – Enabling communities to celebrate what matters to them. Helping to bring people together to share experiences and encouraging everyone within the community to be together, eg Easter, Holi, Passover, The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, community garden party etc.
