How can I apply for funding?
Each community committee has a Wellbeing budget and a Youth Activities Fund. Wellbeing funds are allocated every year to projects that will benefit the local area and address local priorities. Community groups, charities or other public services can apply for small or large grants.
Small grants are up to £500 and large grants are over £500.
The Youth Activities Fund is available to provide local activity for children and young people aged 8-17 years across the city. The fund is to provide opportunities for play, arts, sport and cultural activities.
