Cheshire and Warrington Small Grants Programme up to £2500

We know small amounts of funding can make a big difference to projects responding to the impact of the cost of living crisis. Our small grants programme makes awards from £1-£2,500 for Cheshire and Warrington projects of up to one year in duration.

We’re particularly interested in supporting smaller local charities and grassroots organisations on projects within one or more of the following priority areas:

  • Disadvantaged and vulnerable people of all ages who are disproportionately impacted by the cost of living crisis
  • People needing support through education and skills (ages three and above)
  • Activities which are helping to create healthier and more inclusive places to live, or which help people who are isolated (be that geographically or otherwise) to make new connections and develop their sense of being part of a community
  • Young people experiencing or at risk of exploitation, with a preference for prevention and early intervention projects.

When will I hear back?
Your application will be considered at the next available panel, as long as we receive it before the 15th of the month. Note that we don’t process small grant applications in July and August, or after 16th December.

How does this fit in?
This grants programme links back to our core grant-making priorities:

  • To improve mental health and wellbeing
  • To tackle poverty and disadvantage
  • To develop education, skills and employment
  • To build stronger communities across Cheshire and Warrington
