Stroud District Council’s Community Wellbeing Grant is open for applications and aims to support our communities to recover in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year the fund is intended for applications between £1,000 and £20,000 per year and has been extended to a three year grant term. We hope the longer term will give voluntary and community organisations more security. The grant will support groups who work with their communities to reduce inequality and promote aspects of wellbeing such as physical, mental and financial health, social connection, arts, culture, heritage and the environment.

The deadline for Community Wellbeing Grant applications is 31st January 2022. Download application here.

In addition, this year Stroud District Council are opening a Small Grants Fund for awards of less than £1000. This involves a simple two page form and new bids will be considered every three months. Hopefully this simpler process will support small groups with less experience of bid writing to get small scale projects off the ground.
