Wealden’s community grant scheme – now open

Wealden’s community grant scheme is now open for applications from voluntary and community groups:


The Small Grant Scheme is for grants between £500 – £3000.

The Capital Scheme is for grants between £1000 – £15,000.

Match funding is required, but it can be entirely “in-kind” such as volunteer time, member contributions etc.


A limited number of 40 minute pre-application advice sessions, for groups who have not had one before, will take place during office hours in Hailsham, Crowborough and Uckfield. Sessions must be booked in advance and are to discuss a drafted application for your organisation.

Detailed information about Eligibility and Conditions are given within the Guidance Notes, which must be read before completing an application form. Funds must be spent within the financial year April 2020-March.

Applications must be submitted by the deadline of 30th November 2019.

(Parish Councils, schools and other statutory organisations are not eligible to apply).

Please contact Michelle Gray, Partnerships and Funding Support Officer for further information – email communitygrants@wealden.gov.uk or telephone (01323) 443520.

If you would like hard copies of the attached, please let me know.
