Community Regeneration Fund
The Community Regeneration Fund offers individuals, groups and organisations the opportunity to apply for funding to make a real difference to people's lives and the places where they live.
What the fund supports
The Community Regeneration Fund supports projects that fall into two categories:
- Economic projects
- Social projects
- Frequently Asked Questions
- Case Studies
We are passionate about supporting people to reach their true potential in the areas where we know our help is needed the most. Tackling issues such as unemployment, poverty and education are the three biggest things we can do to help create sustainable communities and more importantly help people to improve their own lives.
In fact it’s so important to us that the majority of funding, 70 per cent is allocated to projects in this area.
Being part of a community that is safe, vibrant and healthy helps people to prosper. The Community Regeneration Fund supports projects that build community spirit and give a sense of ownership helping people to be proud of the areas where they live and more importantly creating communities where people want to live. We’ve aligned 20 per cent of the fund to support projects in this area.
