Derbyshire grants – applications now open

18 February 2022

We’ve launched the Derbyshire Grants scheme with £1.5million to be allocated over the next 2 years to community groups, clubs, local charities and non-profit organisations. Please spread the word if you belong to or work with any groups which could benefit.


Projects need to support one or more of our 5 main priorities and help local communities to thrive. These priorities are:

  • helping residents feel safe
  • supporting young people
  • encouraging residents to be more active
  • supporting ‘green’ issues and sustainability
  • encouraging people to get involved in their communities


Grants in the new scheme are divided into four main types:

  • small grants – supporting activity or projects up to £1,000
  • medium grants – supporting activity or projects between £1,001 - £20,000
  • large grants – supporting projects and programmes between £20,001 - £50,000
  • exceptional – supporting projects which are over £50,000.
