Voluntary and Community Sector 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.

This year we have changed the way we provide grant funding opportunities to voluntary and community sector groups by introducing the Councillor Community Grant Scheme which was launched on 3rd June 2019.

This new scheme will enable Councillors to allocate funds to a wide variety of voluntary community sector groups to deliver creative, community projects for the benefit of Redditch people within their respective wards and/or across the borough whilst at the same time, enabling Ward Councillors to become even more involved with their communities.

Please note! 

As a General Election has been called, the Council will be observing purdah from Monday 11th November until Thursday 12th December.  This means that Councillors are unable to take part in anything which may potentially appear to advantage any particular candidate or party running in the elections.  The Councillor Community Grants Scheme is therefore closed for applications during this period and will reopen on Friday 13th December 2019.  If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to contact the Grants Team who can provide further advice.

Click here to see a 'step by step' guide on how the process works and to see a copy of the application form - please note that all completed applications must be signed and returned to the Grants Team by the Councillor/s supporting the project.
