Tenant Community Grants

Tenant Community Grants

What is a Tenant Community Grant?

A Tenant Community Grant helps fund a project, by up to £1000, that benefits the local community. We look to fund at least six projects a year.

The application is easy and can be filled out by the project organiser for the group.

These grants offer up to £1,000 to be used for things such as:

  • gardening equipment
  • community gardens or benches
  • updating communal rooms
  • organising local events

Previous grants have funded:

  • Benches, planters, seeds and gardening supplies for a community garden
  • New blinds and equipment for communal rooms
  • Funding for a monthly film night
  • Equipment and supplies to start a weekly games club (including badminton, indoor carpet bowls and table tennis)

First, consult with your neighbours and other local residents to get support for your project. It's also a good idea to talk to your housing officer about your plans. Once you have a plan ready for your community project, complete an application form [DOCX, 50Kb], detailing:

  • How much you are applying for (up to a maximum of £1,000)
  • A description of the project
  • A photo of the area, a plan or a sketch of what you want to do
  • How your project will benefit local residents
  • How the project will be managed and who will maintain it.
