  • Bids from groups of organisations will be considered but grants will be paid to one single organisation / entity that will take responsibility for administering the grant on behalf of the others and ensure it is used for the intended purpose
  • The grant funding can be used to support existing initiatives, it does not have to be used to create new initiatives. With regards to supporting the continuation of existing initiatives:
    • Bids must clearly outline how any existing initiatives contribute to the intended outcomes of this grant scheme
    • Bids must clearly outline why funding cannot be accessed elsewhere
    • There is no guarantee that projects which have received previous funding (for example, through other grant schemes) will be funded again
  • All grant applications over £5,000 for Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) groups not previously known to the council will be subject to additional financial checks
  • Any organisation applying must have a UK-based bank account
  • Gloucestershire County Council will help with advice on publicising initiatives funded through this scheme. It is a requirement of the grant that you acknowledge the role of the council as a part-funder in any publicity or literature that you produce by displaying their logo on materials both digital and printed

What sort of initiatives can be funded?

Below is a non-exhaustive list of the types of initiatives which are welcomed:

  • Community activities and development - community hubs, drop-ins, community led development plans etc.
  • Enterprise, employment, and skills development - setting up community-based businesses, apprenticeships, training opportunities, social investment funds etc.
  • Health, wellbeing, and the environment - physical, and mental health support activities, green and environmental improvement projects, community food plans etc.
