This fund is now closed.
Our Community Impact Fund helps voluntary sector organisations and registered charities do even more to build stronger communities across Liverpool and Merseyside.
How does it work?
Eligible organisations can apply for grants of up to £3,000 for projects that meet one or more of our four main priority areas:
- Health & Wellbeing
- Income stability
- Arts and culture.
Applications will be assessed on the impact that the project will have on the lives of those who benefit.
What you can apply for?
For this round, we are particularly interested in funding projects that bring people together, supporting unity and community cohesion. This can include supporting offenders to resettle into the community and helping other vulnerable groups during the forthcoming festive period.
We want to try to support organisations to get back on track and will support general running costs; including staff costs, alterations to buildings to ensure Covid-secure environments and projects that help bring communities back together in a safe way.
Who can apply?
Organisations wishing to apply must be registered charities, or have charitable aims as part of their governing document, and must be able to register with the Charity Commission if their income exceeds £5,000.
Community Interest Companies (CICs) can apply but please refer to the detailed guidance notes for more information about specific criteria for CICs.
