Grants are available from the Better Community Business Network (BCBN) for projects that address a community issue or support a local community initiative; and provide benefits to the local community.

BCBN’s grant initiative distributes one-off grant awards of up to £3,000 to 12 charities or small community projects each year. Each project needs to be credible and able to demonstrate a positive impact on the community it aims to serve.

Applicants are welcomed from groups including local community, self-help or voluntary groups and charities (including local branches of national charities) or individuals acting for the benefit of the local community.

Funding is available for a range of community projects including those relating to health, education, environment, social issues, arts and disability.
