Grants of up to £1,000 for grassroots organisations helping to maintain or strengthen our communities

Application Deadline: Rolling

The HCF Small grants invite applications from grassroots organisations with an annual income of under £100,000 that are helping to maintain and/or strengthen our communities. Successful applications from this programme are funded by a range of the individual, family and corporate funds managed by HCF. Priority will be given to those who are volunteer led and managed.
Examples of the types of group we’re looking for include, but are not limited to:

  • Social groups
  • Youth groups
  • Community associations
  • Community Transport Schemes (these are also eligible for a grant of up to £500 from our Community Transport Fund)

    Applications are considered throughout the year, with a response time of approximately two months from submission. Applications for this programme can be submitted at any time.
