Community Grants


Devonshire West Big Local has been running a successful Community Grants Scheme since 2015.

In that time we have run five funding rounds, worked with 50 different local community & voluntary groups and funded more than 60 different projects.

We run two grant rounds each year, one in the spring and one in the autumn, you can find out when our next round of grants will be open by visiting our main Grants & Funding page here.

    Come and take part in our Focus Groups

    13:00 -14:00

    Come and let us know what you think of the Devonshire West area and tell us how you would like it to develop. We will look at the future priorities and plans and hear some ideas that you may have.

    Some of the discussion points are:

    • How can we enhance public open spaces for local residents?
    • How can we secure the future of heritage buildings for local residents?
    • How can we regenerate Seaside Road and Seaside area?
    • How can we ensure that local residents are financially included?
    • How should we invest in local community groups that provide services to local residents?

    Whatever ideas you have we want to hear them and we look forward to seeing you at our Focus Groups in the near future!
