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.

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.
