Funding For Your Voluntary or Community Organisation





Is your group of volunteers or community organisation looking for additional funding? Central Bedfordshire Council has allocated £182,000 for distribution to worthy causes. Bidding has now opened and the first bidding round will close on 28 February 2020.

Individual organisations can apply for up to £25,000. The Community Assets Grant Scheme aims to help local voluntary and community organisations make projects a reality by offering matched-funding grants to enable them to invest in their community facilities.

There are guidelines to follow, for example, the grants must be used for capital funding projects, for such as a new roof for a community hall or to improve access for people with disabilities, or upgrades to other community assets.

The grant scheme is open to a range of Central Bedfordshire organisations, including voluntary and community groups, not-for-profit organisations and parish or town councils.

To find out more about the scheme visit the CBC website and download your guidance booklet.
