Power To Change

Power to Change uses most of its endowment to directly support community businesses. We distribute our funding through open and targeted programmes, to help new community businesses start up and existing ones be more resilient. From this page,  you can find links to all of our programmes, starting with those that are open for applications.

We encourage and welcome applications from community businesses from all backgrounds, who meet our grant requirements, and who are looking to make a real difference to the lives of their local communities.

Each programme has its own set of criteria so please read our guidance before applying. If you’re not sure which programme is for you, or if you are a community business, check out our diagnostic tool which suggests relevant programmes by which stage you’re at.

The best way to keep up to date with funding rounds is by signing up to our newsletter.


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.
