Voluntary and Community Sector Grant Funding

Redditch Borough Council is committed to supporting voluntary community sector organisations to deliver projects and activities that have a positive and beneficial impact on Redditch and it's residents. We offer support through a variety of ways: in-kind support, partnership working and through direct financial support. Our VCS Grants Programme makes financial contributions to support VCS groups and organisations that actively assist the Redditch community to enjoy a better quality of life.

The 2nd round of the Council's VCS Main Grants Pot (including mental health grant funding) is now open!    

The Main Grants Pot is there for Voluntary Community Sector organisations to bid for funding from £500 up to £7.5K to help with core costs and salaries or to support them deliver great community projects and activities! There's just over £33K available in this round of which £5K has been ringfenced to create a separate 'Mental Health and Wellbeing' funding pot. For this pot, VCS groups can bid for between £500 - £5K to deliver specific projects to support Redditch residents who have suffered from mental health and wellbeing issues or increased mental health and wellbeing issues as a direct result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
