Local Partnership Grant Funding

When can I apply for funding?

The Local Partnerships have agreed their priorities are for their local area for 2019/20 and you can find these here: Local Partnership priorities.

The application process closed on 9 March 2020 and will reopen later in the year.

Can I apply for other funding?

There are other opportunities for local groups to access funding outside of the Local Partnerships.

See them here: Funding Opportunities.

How did we get here?

Following the review of community level governance, the new model of Local Partnerships was agreed in September 2018.

The aims of Local Partnerships are to:

•             Make connections and networks between community groups and the wider community

•             Identify, set and share local community priorities

•             Listen to, consult and represent local communities

•             Distribute grants to support local priorities

They are made up of community representatives, councillors and others with a strong link to the area, meaning they can have a local approach, build on the strengths of the area and reflect the needs of local people.

The Local Partnerships consider applications and award grant funding that was previously overseen by the Local Area Committees.
