Community Pride 2016

In 2016 we have a pot of funding to allocate to local good causes and we are now inviting applications for funding to support community pride projects across Cheltenham.

The funding will be made available to support community-owned projects that will build up community pride and enable local groups to be more influential in supporting their communities and improving their neighbourhoods.

This year we have two pots of funding:

Up to £30,000 will be 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.

Before applying, please read the application guidelines to make sure your project meets our criteria:

If you wish to make an application, please download the application form and save it to your computer. You can then return it by email.

The closing date for applications to the community pride grant fund is 5.00pm on Friday 17 June 2016
