Applications may be made at any time while funding remains available. Large grants of up to £300,000 are available to voluntary and community organisations for projects that will build stronger connections across communities, and improve the infrastructure and conditions that are needed to strengthen these connections.
The programme seeks to fund ideas that enable communities to thrive by creating the conditions, infrastructure and social fabric that enable better and longer lasting ways of bringing people and communities together. This will be achieved by supporting:
- Bold and experimental responses to bringing people together using new, or new combinations of approaches.
- New projects or projects that build on existing work.
- A range of projects reflecting a mix of communities and places from across the UK.
Grants of up to £300,000 are available, for up to two years.
It is expected that up to 20 awards will be made for the 2021/22 period
