What are ‘Give Local’ grants?
‘Give Local’ grants are £1,000 grants given to small charities and community groups who are benefitting local people in need.

People and businesses collectively give to a ‘Give Local’ pot, and 100% of the funds which they donate are then awarded to charities based within and benefitting their local community.

Who can apply for a grant?
The grants are available to small charities and organisations who help people within United Way’s ‘Give Local’ communities. To find out if you work within one, and to download an application form, visit their dedicated web page before 30th June 2017.
