To help deliver the priorities of Leicestershire County Council’s Communities Strategy, the SHIRE Community Grant programme will enable voluntary and community sector organisations (including social enterprises and Town/Parish Councils) to deliver community-based projects, services and activities which directly benefit the most vulnerable people in Leicestershire.
Eligible organisations will be able to access grants of up to £10,000 and/or smaller grants of up to £3,000 for community based projects and activities that are focused on supporting vulnerable/disadvantaged people and communities.
The Council is particularly interested in funding new and innovative projects that will:
- support the most vulnerable individuals and communities in Leicestershire
- provide early intervention and prevention based solutions
- complement existing services already being delivered
Organisations interested in applying for a grant are asked to read the Guidance Notes carefully and contact a Grant Officer to discuss their project proposal before completing an online application form.
The Grant Officers contact details: By phone – 0116 305 7269 / 0116 305 7020 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
