Just Act

Just Act, part of the Crowdfunder family, believes in communities working together and provides all the tools and know-how to bring ideas to life.

The Just Act Community Fund will distribute £50,000 to community projects across England and Wales. They'll be adding up to 50% of the funding target to a maximum of £1,000 to volunteer-led community projects that will change lives for the better.

Trusthouse Charitable Foundation

We accept applications from organisations which are addressing issues in rural areas, and from local or national charities or not-for-profit organisations which are working with residents of urban areas (i.e. more than 10,000 inhabitants) which are classified in the latest government Indices of Multiple Deprivation as being in the most deprived 20%.

Within these overarching themes, we are interested in three areas:

WHSmith Trust Community Grants

The following community groups may apply for WHSmith Community Grants:

Registered or Exempt Charities
Voluntary/Community Groups (constituted)
Schools and pre-schools

There are two annual application rounds – 1st October to 31st March, and 1st April to 30th September – and at the end of each six month period grant applications will be reviewed and grants issued. Grants are made at the discretion of the trustees of the WHSmith Group Charitable Trust and are subject to there being available reserves.

Enable grants

Enable grants are up to a total of £15,000 over one or two years, and can reinvigorate charities through funding organisational improvements, development of areas such as leadership and governance, improved systems and demonstrating outcomes. These developments put charities in a stronger position to better deliver services and attract funding.

Celebrate England

Six out of ten people surveyed* say they cannot remember ever coming together to celebrate with their community. The Big Lottery Fund wants to help change this with our Celebrate! programme.

We are offering grants of between £300 and £10,000 for groups to hold one off events or activities which celebrate their local community.

You could celebrate something from your community's history or a local hero. Or maybe it's a chance to bring people together to get to know their neighbours better.

We have a total of £3.875m for projects in England.

Celebrate UK

You could celebrate something from your community's history or a local hero. Or maybe it's a chance to bring people together to get to know their neighbours better.

We are especially keen to receive applications from groups who have not applied to us before.

You will also need to show that your project is open to everyone in your local community.

We will give higher priority to applications from:

Breckland - Small Match Funding Grants

The Small Match Funding scheme forms part of Breckland Council's Community Funding Reserve, which is a group of funding streams that have been designed to empower groups and individuals within the district to deliver projects at a local level that align with the Council's objectives. It is an 'enabling fund' that aims to encourage 'localism' in addressing identified community need.

The Small Match Funding scheme offers grants to cover up to 50% of the total project costs.

Bransholme Trust

With donations from the Sir James Reckitt Charity and the Hull and East Riding Charitable Trust, the Bransholme Trust is able to offer small grants to charitable groups who are active in Hull. The funding is administered by the Hull Community and Voluntary Services (CVS).

Funding is intended to assist local voluntary and community groups with projects and activities that benefit Bransholme Estate residents.
