Epping Forest - Grants for Sports, Arts, Leisure and Community Groups

The Grants for Sports, Arts, Leisure and Community Groups scheme is provided and administered by Epping Forest District Council. Under this programme, the Council offers the Major Grants and Three-year Revenue Grants.

Funding is intended to assist local voluntary and community groups and organisations that are providing services in line with the Council's objectives and targets.

The priority areas are as follows:

Eden - Leisure Fund Grant for Organisations

The Leisure Fund Grant scheme is provided and administered by Eden District Council. Funding is intended for local not-for-profit clubs, groups and organisations and can be used for a wide variety of leisure projects.

Small grants are available to local community groups for capital and revenue costs associated with projects that support and improve sports, arts and other leisure activities in the district.

Hinrichsen Foundation

The Hinrichsen Foundation was founded in 1976 by Mrs Carla Eddy Hinrichsen to ensure the continuation of the tradition of supporting contemporary music established by the Hinrichsen family as the proprietors of Edition Peters the music publishers, established more than 200 years ago in the German city of Leipzig.

Community Project Funding

MfA really know first-hand what an amazing affect making music can have on people’s lives. They see everything from disadvantaged young people blossoming at school through to older adults discovering music sometimes for the first time, much later on in life. In their view, EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn to play music. Sadly, many people are not fortunate enough to have access to musical instruments or ways to help them to learn and discover.  This is where MfA come in.

CN Group Fund

The CN Group Fund was set up in 2000 with a donation of £100,000 by the Cumbria Newspaper Group to create a long-term capital fund that would benefit Cumbria. The fund is administered by the Cumbria Community Foundation.

The fund aims to support projects which support one of the Foundation’s aims:

  • Tackling disadvantage in rural communities
  • Tackling disadvantage in pockets of deprivation including the 20% most deprived wards
  • Supporting disadvantaged children and young people
  • Hidden and emerging need.
