Are you part of the charity, faith, community or volunteering sector with a great idea for a project? If so there are a number of different funding pots you can apply to as well as ways you can get advice and support for your project:
- Council member allocation - Each county councillor has a budget allocation so organisations and groups can apply for funds for projects that promote the social, economic and environmental well-being of the local community. Contact your local councillor to find out more.
- Keep Britain Tidy - Order a free Big Tidy Up kit for a local litter pick or clean up event.
- Community Covenant Grant Scheme - Funds local projects which strengthen the ties or the mutual understanding between members of the Armed Forces Community and the wider community in which they live.

- The London Marathon Charitable Trust - As a result of our involvement in hosting the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and Classic, grants are available to local projects that get more people participating in sport and encourage local community engagement.
