Community Projects Fund

What would you do with £100 million in Surrey?

What does your local community need? A new community centre? A local swimming pool? Collaborative work space? New football pitches? A community food growing space? A space to train and learn?

Think BIG.

Speak to your neighbours and community groups in your area about how you can deliver exciting, inspiring and 'place-changing' projects together.

Ideas can be plotted on the interactive Commonplace map below, with people able to comment, make further suggestions or simply give project ideas a thumbs up. See further information through the sections on this webpage.

Projects that meet the criteria and prove that they will deliver a positive benefit for local people will be taken through an application process and the first funding will be administered in Spring 2021.

Your Fund Surrey can be accessed for:

  • Capital, one-off costs - the Fund cannot pay for ongoing running and maintenance costs
  • Projects that fit with the aims of Surrey's Community Vision
  • Projects that have the support of your local community
