Grants

Do you need funding for your project?

Supporting the local community through our grants programme is a core part of what we do. Exclusive to the Borough of Bedford, our grants provide essential funding to the groups who run projects to help improve the lives of others.

We have approximately £1million a year in grant funds that we are able to award to projects that focus on education, recreation and relief. In particular we welcome applications which address our priority areas of Transitions, Resilience and Isolation. More information about our priorities is available on the grants to organisations page.

Although most of our grants are given to organisations, we also offer a very small number of grants to individuals each year, generally to adults who are returning to education in order to improve their employment prospects.
