Grants available to support local charities and community groups

Community groups and charities across Gloucestershire and our other operating areas are invited to apply for grants of up to £5,000 from the Two Rivers Initiatives Community Fund, set up to provide a positive impact on local communities.

Two Rivers Initiatives is part of the Two Rivers Housing Group and was set up to support registered charities and constituted groups. It is making £90,000 in grant funding available during 2021 for investment in social and community facilities.

Registered charities and constituted groups can apply for grants of up to £5,000 from three £30,000 grant pots that will be made available throughout 2021.

Applications are now open for the second £30,000 grant pot and will remain open until 31 August 2021.

The first £30,000 pot opened for applications in March and is now closed and the final £30,000 grant pot will be made available from 1 October 2021 and 31 December 2021.

The Community Fund is looking for projects that:

• reconnect people who might otherwise suffer from isolation or exclusion.
• improve the quality of life for people in their communities.
• work with individuals and communities to support independent living.
• tackle community safety issues and anti-social behaviour.

Any charity or community group wishing to apply for a grant will need to meet the funds criteria and complete the application for funding below.
