What is the Citizen Local Fund?

The Citizen Local Fund is a £50,000 pot of funding available to local groups and projects.


The aim of the fund is to support our residents and communities to thrive. We support ideas and projects that promote mental and physical wellbeing, reduce social isolation, bring communities together and enhance local areas.


Grants of up to £5,000 are available. Applying is simple – just fill out our application form below and we will review it and come back to you.


Don’t think your project is too small and count it out. As long as it benefits the wellbeing of people in our communities we will consider it. The amount you apply for is up to you.
