Shipley Area Community Chest, deadline 2 March 2018

30 January 2018

Grants of up to £350 are available from Shipley Area Committee for community projects that benefit residents of Shipley Constituency.

  • Applications are particularly welcome from new projects, innovative schemes and from previously unfunded groups.
  • Ongoing costs such as venue hire and staffing will only be funded through a start-up grant for new organisations.
  • Grants will not normally be provided for ICT-related equipment or websites.
  • Applications are welcome from groups where other funding/fundraising has been secured.
  • The organisation should be a non-profit making voluntary organisation where membership is open. Grants will not usually be awarded to organisations that have paid staff.

Change to grants criteria

"Under normal circumstances groups and organisations can only apply for a grant once every two years. However, on this occasion (and for this round only) groups who have received a Community Chest grant from Shipley Area Committee within the last two years are welcome to apply again."


The next deadline for applications is 2 March 2018.

Please read the guidance notes before completing the application form.
