Community Grant Scheme

Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council awards grants to local voluntary and community organisations to support a range of projects to benefit the people of the Town.

From August 2018 two new grant schemes will be operated:

  • The Devolved Grant Scheme – for grants up to £10,000.

Where ward councillors are involved in agreeing the grant applications for smaller projects.

  • The Central Grant Scheme – for grants over £10,000 and up to £20,000.

Which will focus on funding larger projects for social inclusion projects or those emerging from Community Plans (or similar).

Please read the guidance notes prior to submitting an application to find out who is eligible, what the process is and what the grant can be spent on.  Applications can be submitted at any time, however there are some deadline date included in the notes, which coincide with the relevant committee meetings they will need to go to.

To apply, please use the relevant grant application form:
