Voluntary and community sector funding

If you are a new or an established voluntary or community sector organisation and want to set up innovative projects in Redditch, you could be eligible for funding under our grants schemes.

We make direct financial support, partnership working and in-kind support available because we recognise the value of the unsung heroes in a vibrant and thriving voluntary and community sector providing valuable local services.

There are two main grant programmes:

  1. The Voluntary and Community Sector Grant Programme is an annual scheme for local projects under set grant ‘themes’ that opens each September for applications for funding in the next financial year
  2. The Stronger Communities Grant Programme is for smaller less formal projects and is split into several funding rounds throughout the year.

Both schemes are published here whenever they become available.
