Community Grants Fund Information
Community Grants Fund - Information
The Community Grants Fund is designed to support pieces of work or
projects which fall outside mainstream service delivery, but which
clearly benefit local people in the Western Edinburgh area. A
Grant of up to £5,000 is available to constituted community groups
with an open membership.
The Neighbourhood Partnership assesses applications on the basis
of the priorities set out in the Local Community Plan 20011 -
14. These are:
1 Providing more activities for young
2 Improve service delivery and engagement with
older people and vulnerable adults.
3 Making our environment cleaner and more
attractive and supporting and valuing our local
4 Improve public transport networks and
5 Promote healthy living and better health.
The Partnership is keen to make sure that local people and
organisations know about these grants and how to apply, so that we
can make the best use of this resource for the local
