Grants and funding opportunities

Last Modified July 19, 2017
 

Community grants

We offer small-scale financial support to local voluntary groups and organisations to help them provide a range of community services to Hertsmere residents. Charitable / voluntary organisations can apply for up to £2,000. 

Ward Improvement Initiative Scheme (WIIS)

Each of our 39 councillors has £500 to spend on worthwhile projects in their ward that support Hertsmere's corporate goals.

Celebration Grants

To mark special events, e.g. national Older People's Day, national celebrations etc. we may offer celebration grants.  These grants can be used by voluntary organisations, based in Hertsmere, to celebrate these occasions as they wish

Health and Wellbeing grants

The Health and Wellbeing Partnership Health Grants 2015/16 is aimed at supporting local community and voluntary groups in Hertsmere to improve health and wellbeing for those that live, work and visit the area.  Find out more here.

Grants for Hertsmere

We have recently subscribed to a new service Grants for Hertsmere. 

This is an easy to use, free service which can help organisations identify suitable funding for their activity or project.  This online resource can be used by local community groups, social enterprises and business to search for funding opportunities. 

Disabled Facilities Grants

Disabled Facilities Grants are to adapt homes to make them more suitable for disabled people to live in and manage independently. The grants are available to people who are registered, or registerable, as disabled.

Owner occupiers, tenants and landlords on behalf of tenants can apply but they must do so through the occupational therapist at Hertfordshire County Council Social Services Department who will specify the necessary adaptations.

Tesco Bags of Help

The money raised from the 5p bag charge in Tesco stores in England, Wales and Scotland is being used to pay for a large number of local projects to improve green spaces in communities. Projects that will get the green light as a result of the funding will include building new pocket parks, sports facilities, woodland walks and community gardens.

Administration of the local funding is being managed by the community charity with a green heart, Groundwork, which specialises in transforming communities and the local environment for the better.
