What can organisations apply for?
There are three programmes available.
  • Microgrants (Up to £1,000), delivered in partnership with Warrington Voluntary Action, to provide grants for community lead projects.
  • Project Grants (Up to £15,000) will deliver grants for up to two years. To help develop previous work or explore different ways of working in Warrington. We will prioritise projects which help to build the capacity and sustainability of the organisation.
  • Strategic Funding Grants (Up to £30,000) will deliver grants for up to three years. This programme will run once a year, funding established organisations working with disadvantaged people in Warrington.
