Aspire voluntary grants

Applications for 2021/22 grants are now closed. Applications for 2022/23 will open later this year.​

The Aspire voluntary grants scheme offers funding towards one-off costs of projects and activities. The projects must support older, more vulnerable and less advantaged residents. ​

Grant support is only available to charitable, social enterprise, community and voluntary organisations. ​

Organisations receiving funding from the council through separate funding agreements will be ineligible. ​

The maximum grant available under this scheme is £5,000. ​

Approved applications may be supported in full or in part. This will depend on the assessment of applications against our criteria. It also depends on the level of demand from eligible organisations under the scheme. ​
