BDBC Community & Voluntary Sector Grant Awards

The Community and Voluntary Sector Grant Award Scheme is now closed for applications for programme grant funding. Applications are currently being assessed and applicants will be informed of funding decisions by 28 February 2018.

This page will be updated when the scheme is reopened.


The Community and Voluntary Sector Grant Award Scheme is now open for applications for programme grant funding, for projects that will:

  • Take place between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2021.
  • Continue for between one and three years.
  • Require funding of up to a maximum value of £20,000 per grant, per annum.
  • Deliver specific, relevant activities that respond to identified local need.
  • Have monitored outcomes that will impact positively on council priorities.
  • Demonstrate partnership working, including involving communities in the design and delivery of services.

Priorities for funding

We want to fund clearly defined projects which can demonstrate that they will help to build communities where people thrive and feel they belong. Funded programmes should support communities to become more resilient by delivering sustainable activities that meet identified local needs. A detailed description of these priorities is available at the scheme website.

We are looking for projects with high quality outcomes that will make a real difference to people’s lives, rather than activities that might engage with large numbers but have little impact. We recognise that some projects will reach only a relatively small number of people because of their complex needs.

How to apply

Please refer to the Guide for Applicants as this provides valuable additional information.

The closing date for applications is 5 pm on Monday 9th October 2017. All completed application forms, and supporting documents, should be returned by this deadline, either by post to the council offices or to the email address shown below.

Applicants will be informed of funding decisions by 28th February 2018.

Please note that council funding cannot be awarded until 1st April 2018.

Please note: Basingstoke Voluntary Action work closely with the local community to raise awareness of grants and also assist with advice and guidance on applications etc. If you apply for this or any other grant, please let us know via email to enable us to understand what is being applied for. Also, if you are in fact successful in receipt of any grant please let us know to enable reporting of such funding locally.
