2021 Community Fund

About the fund

Staffordshire has always had a fantastic voluntary and community sector. We know that things have taken a knock over the last year, and our county councillors are this year using their funding to help get community activity back to where it should be.

Each county councillor has up to £2,500 to allocate for:

  1. Projects to get Staffordshire’s voluntary and community sector back to thriving, including initiatives that will help groups to develop or restart their own fundraising; or
  2. Projects to help paused community activities get going again in a safe way; or
  3. Projects looking to build on the community energy of the past year and keep it going, e.g. by transitioning new community networks into more formal community groups or Good Neighbour schemes

County councillors can spend their £2500 in smaller amounts or jointly with other County Councillors, to fund projects which work across their local areas, or even to fund projects working districtwide or countywide.

How to apply

To apply for the 2021 Community Fund, please read the guidance about the fund which contains important information about the application, and speak to your county councillor. Then you can proceed to apply using the button below.
