We give grants to projects and groups that help to improve quality of life for the people who live in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon.

Each year we have around £1 million to distribute in discretionary grants, with some funding already committed to multi-year projects and grants awarded earlier in the year.

We primarily fund local non-profit making community groups and organisations. Other non-profit organisations are welcome to apply as long as the project/initiative is focused and based within Stratford-upon-Avon. You don’t have to live in the town to apply for a grant, but your project or group must benefit people who live in the town.

What kind of projects could I get a grant for?

We’ve identified five key priorities where our grants can make the biggest difference to the local community:

  • Improve Health and Wellbeing
  • Create Postive Activities for Young People
  • Reduce Loneliness and Social Isolation
  • Protect and Support Vulnerable Communities
  • Provide Support During a Time Crisis

To be considered for funding, your activity should meet at least one of the above priority themes.
