Grants and Sponsorship
We aim to be more than a social landlord. We want to invest in the lives of our tenants and the local community in ways that will improve people’s quality of lives. This is the purpose of the Grant and Sponsorship Scheme. Our award scheme is open for voluntary and community organisations to apply.
1. Small grant – up to £500
Constituted and non-constituted groups are eligible to apply for this grant. If you are a non-constituted group we are not able to provide you with a monetary grant. In place of this, we will pay invoices/costs direct to a supplier. There will be a maximum of 2 applications allowed per annum.
2. Medium grant – up to £1,000 large grant – up to £5000*.
Only constituted groups will be eligible to apply for this grant. There will be a maximum number application in the same financial year.
* There may be exceptional circumstances where this may change depending on need and relevance of the initiative. Please contact the Engagement and Ownership Team before completing your application.
