New small grants programme being trialled

December 9, 2021 Tags: , ,

Birmingham City Council’s Neighbourhood Development Support Unit (NDSU) is trialling a new programme of grants, aimed at small, well-established community groups and organisations who are trusted in their local areas.

The NDSU Covid-19 Recovery and Community Support Small Grants programme is aimed at helping grassroots groups recover from the detrimental effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Grants of up to £2,000 over six months will be available, to help organisations change, adapt and expand their delivery. Requests can include funding to cover items such as essential running costs, activities and equipment.

The NDSU team will be holding two online information sessions in December to provide an overview of the fund, discuss ideas and signpost to support available. Please email if you would like to attend an event, ask questions, or get support with the application process.

To apply, download a copy of the application form and submit your completed form to by Friday 14 January. Decisions will be communicated at the end of February, and your funded activities must start by the end of March.
