Community Pride 2019

£30,000 was made available through Cheltenham Borough Council's Community Pride Fund 2019 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 wanted to use our community pride fund to support our place vision and ambitions for Cheltenham as well as to support the No Child Left Behind year of action, which aims to highlight and help to address the issue of children growing up in poverty.  

Community pride grants were available to match-fund community-led projects, up to the value of £5,000 to fund the following:

  • Community-led projects that enable local businesses and their workforces to thrive
  • Community-led projects that enable people and communities to thrive, and that support physical and mental wellbeing
  • Community-led projects that enable culture and creativity to thrive in Cheltenham
  • Community-led projects that target inequality and help to reduce the impact of children growing up in poverty.

Up to £4,000 was also 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.

The fund was open for applications until Friday 7 June.
