Bids for community fund invited

Grants of up to £1500 are being offered to community groups in South Bucks District, with a total  of £20,000 to distribute to worthy local causes.

The deadline for applications is midday on Wednesday 28 June. Groups wishing to apply will first be required to complete an expression of interest form. Once that has been received, an online grant application form will be sent to individual groups. 

Grants are open to voluntary and community charitable groups based in South Bucks District, or which work to the benefit of district residents. The fund is provided by South Bucks District Council, and is being delivered in collaboration with Heart of Bucks community foundation.

Applications for funding can be for new and existing projects; core costs or capital expenditure - such as equipment, building modifications etc. Village Hall projects can qualify if they are to improve standards of the facility - not for wear and tear. Similarly, playground projects would be considered, providing the applying group has consulted with the local community over the type of equipment desired.

Successful organisations will demonstrate how they meet South Bucks District's key themes for:

  • a thriving economy
  • a sustainable environment
  • safer communities
  • health and wellbeing
  • cohesive and strong communities
