Community Grants

 

Our Community Grants offer up to £3,000 to community groups for larger scale projects or events

We run two rounds of grants each year, one in the spring and one in the autumn, each round is open for 6 weeks and applications can be submitted at any point within those 6 weeks.

Who can apply?

  • Informal groups with Constitutions
  • Formal groups with Constitutions
  • Registered Charities
  • Community Interest Companies (CIC)
  • Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIO)

We do not fund individuals not affiliated with a group, if you are an individual interested in applying for a grant you can contact our Community Development Officer for advice by emailing Jessica.Boelema@3VA.org.uk

What do we fund?

All potential projects applying for our funding must relate to one or more of our 5 key DWBL themes;

  1. Whole Community
  2. Children and Young People
  3. Older People
  4. Multicultural
  5. Environment and Area Appearance

You can download an application form here and the funding guidance notes here. Alternatively you can contact Jessica.Boelema@3VA.org.uk for an application pack or more information on our Community grants and for support completing the application.

Grant awardees are expected to complete two evaluations forms should they receive funding, an Interim Evaluation half way through the project, and a Final Evaluation, after the project has ended.

Micro Grants

 

Micro Grants offer up to £200 that can be used in a number ways, for example;

  • Towards a small scale project, such as a workshop or one off event
  • Towards  equipment or items which would enable an organisation to work in our area

Micro grants can be applied for at any time in the year, they will be discussed at the board meeting which falls after they are submitted. The DWBL board meets once a month on the second Tuesday of the month.

We ask that if you plan to apply for a Micro grant that you submit your application at least 7 days before a board meeting as applications submitted very close to a meeting date will be delayed to the following month as our agenda is set 7 days before each meeting.

You can contact Samantha.Wickens@3VA.org.uk for an application pack or more information on our Micro grants or you can download a copy of the application form here.

 

Facilities Grants

 

DWBL also offers grants of up to £60,000 for projects to improve facilities or physical infrastructure within Devonshire West.

We have previously invested money in key local buildings which are used by our community such as Leaf Hall, The Royal Hippodrome, the Eastbourne Operatic and Dramatic Society building and Seaside Community Hub.

For more information on our Facilities grants please contact us by emailing Jessica.Boelema@3VA.org.uk
