Community grants and funding

Community Projects fund

Capital grants for village and community halls and other community facilities such as children's play areas.

Grants will be awarded between £1,000 and £10,000, up to 25% of a project's total cost. Applicants are expected to raise the remainder from other sources, including at least a 10% contribution from the local area, and to work closely with their local district councillor(s).

For more information read the criteria for applicants below. After reading the criteria, if you believe your project could be eligible, contact us to discuss what information we will require (this could be quotes for building work/supplies, planning permission, evidence of contributions from other parties, etc. and will differ on a project by project basis).

Cotswold District Council has made the decision to suspend the current Community Activity Support grant scheme in light of the Covid-19 restrictions. See latest news
