It's here! Grassroots Giving 2016
Community groups from across the UK are being invited to apply for a slice of £81,500 funding as the award-winning Grassroots Giving programme launches for 2016.
Grassroots Giving has already donated £241,500 to 483 small organisations since it was launched three years ago. Last year we rewarded 162 groups with pots of £500 to help them continue their amazing work in local neighbourhoods across the country. We also uncovered more fantastic stories of hard work and dedication, UK wide, to add to the ones we saw in 2013 and 2014.
Details of all our winners so far can be found elsewhere on this website.
In 2016 we will be handing out pots of £500 to another 163 deserving causes so don't miss your chance to be one of the successful organisations.
