Examples of funded projects are:

  • The purchase of equipment such as computers or furniture
  • The costs of putting on a local event or workshop
  • Staff costs to employ someone such as a co-ordinator or sessional worker
  • Costs of attending a conference or event
  • Training for volunteers
  • Contribution to the cost of rent
  • Building repairs or refurbishment
  • Running costs ... and much, much more!

To be eligible, you simply need to be a small voluntary or community group that has an annual income of less than £30,0001

The session is open to:

  • Eligible groups
  • Groups who could become eligible (for example, if your organisation doesn't have a constitution yet, or needs help developing a policy that's required)
  • Organisations who work with groups in the above categories

The session is open to groups which are based in the borough of Richmond or which work with people in the borough of Richmond.

The session will cover:

  • An Introduction to Grassroots Grants - Barbara Billey (Thames Community Foundation)
  • An opportunity to ask questions of the Grant-maker
  • Filling in the form - common mistakes and how to avoid them
