Is your community group in need of a grant to support a project or activity across South Gloucestershire?

The Area Wide Grant scheme is now open    

We are inviting applications before 14 May 2018 from voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations and town and parish councils for the first round of the Area Wide Grant (AWG) scheme 2018/19.

Area Wide Grants can be applied for to support community projects, events or services designed to meet the needs of residents in at least six of the 14 Community Engagement Forum (CEF) areas in South Gloucestershire.

£70,000 is available for award in 2018/19; the maximum level of award is £3,000 with flexibility for both exceptional circumstances and budget availability.

All organisations must be registered to the Grants on-line system with approval received prior to application. For more information please see our Registration Guidance.

You can also contact the Grants Helpline for support and advice or to request an application form on 01454 865865 or

In support of the Area Wide Grant scheme a number of Principles for Area Wide Grants have been agreed to provide a transparent, accountable, consistent and legal process.
