Community and voluntary groups are invited to bid for grants between £500 and £10,000 for local projects that will benefit the residents of the borough. This round, bids are especially welcome under the theme Environment & Attractive Neighbourhoods.

The deadline to apply for round six funding is October 16. Round seven will open on October 23, and the application deadline will be December 18.

Organisations based outside the borough are welcome also to apply, but need to show evidence of real engagement with local partners and the council teams in order to avoid duplication of work.

A series of Meet the funder events will be held in the coming weeks to provide information on how to apply to the Wandsworth Grant Fund.

  • September 12, 10.30am- 12.30pm: Roehampton Base
  • September 20, 2pm-4.30pm, Balham Library Hall
  • September 28, 5.30pm-7pm, Caius House, Battersea

The Wandsworth Grant Fund was been brought in to streamline the process for funding projects under these council priorities:

1. Arts and Culture

2. Environment and Attractive Neighbourhoods

3. Children and Young People

4. Citizenship and Civic Engagement

5. Achieving Aspirations and Potential

6. Health and Well being

One team administers the grants process while evaluation and assessment is undertaken by a group of specialist council officers. Applications also receive a high level of scrutiny by councillors to ensure money is going where it is most needed and will have most benefit for the borough’s residents.

In June this year 22 local projects, including several schemes to support young people, shared £114k of round five funding. An additional £20,000 will be allocated to fund the 2018 Wandsworth Arts Fringe.
