Our Bi-monthly small grants programme aims to support projects across the whole of Cheshire and Warrington for people of all ages.

Grants awarded from £1 to £2000 over one year or less, but during the current crisis this may be more flexible, so please call if you have any queries regarding the amount to apply for.

(NB: for a one off trip or luncheon, the maximum contribution is £250)

We are  particularly interested in supporting smaller charities through this programme  (with a turnover of less than £300,000) and to assist local grassroots organisations that support one, or more, of the following priority areas:
  • Disadvantaged and vulnerable people affected by the covid-19 outbreak
  • Homelessness
  • Education and skills (for ages 3 to 18)
  • Community support – to include support for older people
  • Disadvantaged and exploited young people, with a preference for prevention and early intervention projects
