Community Grant Scheme

The Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council Community Grant fund is now closed.

Thank you to all applicants who have helped make this year a successful year.  To date, over £93,000 has been awarded to 25 community groups to fund a variety of projects to support the residents of Sutton Coldfield.

The 2018/19 Community Grant scheme is currently being reviewed and updated to reflect the new wards within Sutton Coldfield and will be considered by the Amenities Committee in June and then Full Council.  At the present time no grant applications can be made.  The earliest that grants will be available is July.

In the meantime we have a list of other grant giving organisations available, you might wish to consider.
