Who can apply?

Small community groups with little or no money. The scheme will prioritise supporting groups with a turnover of less than £10,000 a year, although groups with a turnover of less than £25,000 a year are welcome to apply. However the less turnover your group has, the more likely your application will be successful.

How much and what can you apply for?

The grants are available in two pots; a discretionary grant pot (£2,000) and a grant pot (£3,000) which will be distributed by a panel.

The discretionary grant pot (£2,000) will be awarded evenly over the period of a year. Groups can apply for full or part funding for their meetings. The average grant will be between £20 – £50. It is expected that four grants per month will be made by the management of Brighthelm.

A quarterly panel will award the remaining grant pot (£3,000). The panel will normally meet quarterly in January, April, July and October to review applications and award grants for the following quarter. Grants of £50 – £500 will be available.
