Neighbourhood Watch Community Grants Fund
NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH COMMUNITY GRANTS FUND
We are really pleased to be relaunching our Community Grants Fund as a permanent fixture, following a successful trial that ran November 2020-March 2021.
Grants of up to £500 are available to Neighbourhood Watch Associations and Neighbourhood Watch groups as per the guidelines and a successful application. A minimum of 20 will be released in each round. Not all applications will be successful. The upcoming application dates are:
Autumn round: opens 18th October 2021, closes 17th December 2021
Spring round: opens 14th March 2022, closes 13th May 2022
Autumn round: opens 12th September 2022, closes 11th November 2022
You must read the full guidelines (attached) before applying for the grant, and use our application form and budget template, which can be downloaded from the webpage. Some of the criteria and information has been updated and clarified, so please ensure you are only using the application form and guidelines on the website: ourwatch.org.uk/communitygrants.
Applications will only be accepted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Around 60% of funds will go towards one-off development projects and around 40% will go towards core costs/setting up Neighbourhood Watch within communities. Short listing will be done only after the round has closed and you will be updated on whether your application was successful or not by the end of the month following the closure of that round.
If you would like a bit more information, we are holding a short presentation on how to apply on Monday 25th October 4.00pm-5.00pm – please sign up by registering here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIkdeqoqDsjGtdi2l8c_0yHyltZsFfoiSA3
