Inspire Fund

Resident groups or community organisations can apply for grants of up to £1,000 to help fund local projects and events.

The Stronger Community Inspire Fund is primarily about supporting local social action. We want to encourage people to get involved in their local community by offering small grants to help establish new services, events or activities that:

  • increase social interaction
  • encourage neighbourliness
  • improve the wellbeing of individuals and communities

The grant may be used to:

  • fund events or activities
  • help with start-up costs for new projects or services
  • purchase small items of equipment

Grants of up to £1,000 will be made as a one-off contribution to the cost of an eligible project. Applications should demonstrate the project can be delivered without needing future support from this fund.
