Community Action Grants

Community Action Grants enable groups operating in North East Derbyshire to access up to £500 grant funding to support residents to tackle local issues in the District that support our Council Plan (.pdf | 4mb). The funding is open to formally constituted groups and non-constituted groups who are sponsored by an organisation who will act on their behalf, such as a Town or Parish Council or other constituted group. The scheme is not open to businesses.

We would welcome applications which aim to help or promote awareness of the benefits physical activity, community events, local community improvements, reducing social isolation, raising awareness of climate change, improving recycling rates and reducing litter, enhancing biodiversity, supporting development of local volunteers and groups, addressing parking issues and reducing anti-social behaviour.

Council Plan priorities may link to project ideas and can be found in the Community Action Grant Priority List (.pdf | 210kb) document.
