Independent of our Community Grants, a small portion of our funds is allocated to support responses to changing needs in our community. Rapid Response grants provide instant resources to organised groups and residents seeking to respond to an opportunity or risk. This may be a small grant up to £50 or the supply of tools and equipment or even a persons time to help you achieve your aim. Successful applications have included the removal of fly tipping, community transport, enhancing community activities like litter picking and small celebrations.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. You can only apply for one Rapid Response grant within a 12 month period.
Timely and Urgent: the specific event, opportunity or challenge that your organised group is responding to must require urgent action.
