Could your community project benefit from a cash boost?
Do you have an idea for an event in your community? Apply to the Glasgow Community Events Fund to make it happen!
This fund is open to formally constituted local community groups working for and with people in Glasgow and aims to help them do more, reach more people, or try something different! We want communities all over Glasgow to be inspired and make something happen that matters locally.
You may be planning a Winter Festival event or Christmas Fair, maybe a Family Fun Day during the mid-term break in February 2019 or want to enhance your Street Play 2018 programme. Or perhaps St Andrew’s Day Ceilidh or Burns Supper. It’s up to you – anything is possible!
We are particularly interested in funding events that;
- help reduce social isolation and loneliness
- support health and well-being
- take place in areas of highest deprivation
- are aimed at children and families
- help to alleviate poverty
This fund is open to formally constituted local community groups working for and with people in Glasgow. One-off grants of £500, £750 or £1,000 are available to support a range of community events.
There will be two funding rounds in 2018/19.
The first closing date is Friday 16th November 2018. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of applications by 26th November 2018.
The second closing date is Friday 25th January 2019. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of applications by 4th February 2019.
