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 scheme.

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.

VCS grants update.....

Redditch Borough Council is changing the way it provides grant funding opportunities to voluntary and community sector groups and organisations operating in Redditch.

From April 2019, RBC will move away from the existing grants programme (Major Grants and Stronger Communities Grant Awards) and pilot the new Councillor Community Grant Scheme.

The new scheme will enable Councillors to allocate funds to the voluntary community sector to deliver creative community projects for the benefit of Redditch people within their respective wards (and/or district-wide), whilst at the same time enabling Ward Councillors to become even more involved with their communities and to have a better understanding of local priorities.

Further details about the Councillor Community Grant Scheme and how to apply will be available in the new year. Feel free to contact the Grants Team on 01527 64252 ext. 2667 or grants.team@redditchbc.gov.uk if you wish to discuss this further in the meantime.
