Community Pride

Community Pride 2015

Community Pride is a pot of funding that Cheltenham Borough Council allocates to local community groups so that they can deliver projects that will build up community pride and improve their neighbourhoods.

This year we have two pots of funding:

Up to £50,000 is being made available via community pride grants to match-fund community-led projects, up to the value of £5,000. We are particularly interested in projects that will build up community pride either through:

  • Community-led projects that will improve the physical environment of their neighbourhood;
  • Community-led projects that will bring communities together via cultural activities, festivals, commemorations and celebrations;
  • Community-led projects that will increase the recognition, economic viability and sustainability of local commercial areas.

Up to £4,000 will also be made available via community-building grants to community and voluntary sector groups to run small-scale projects, events and activities to help them support the well-being of their neighbourhood up to the value of £300.

If you are interested in applying, please read the application guidelines first

If you feel your project meets the criteria, then please complete the application form and return by email to:

The closing date for applications to the community pride grant fund is 5.00pm Monday 22nd June 2015
