Grants and funding

Great ideas often cost money, and we want to help you to make them happen. So, if you need a bit of funding to start up a community project, or to keep your existing group going, we can offer a helping hand through our community grants.

This short video shows the difference these grants made last year to some of the local groups and charities we work with.



Live in a community with Sovereign residents?

We also fund projects where our residents live - because the more that’s going on the better life will be for everyone - we all love a happy neighbourhood. To make this happen we’ve teamed up with two different funders, where community groups and charities can apply for funding of up to £10k. Here’s a bit more about them: 


Got a great idea? Well, if the community agrees they’ll help you and we’ll match it. What better way to get everyone on board and raise money from the crowd?

There are obviously some criteria, but if your project fits the bill you could get an extra cash injection of up to 50% of your project target (maximum pledge of £10k).

You can read all about it and apply on our dedicated page on the Crowdfunder website.

The Good Exchange

Looking for a grant? Then this is the place to go. As well as funding from us, they’ll also match you with other funding opportunities. Rather than you having to apply to lots of different places, they’ve got lots of different funders under one roof.

We can award up to £10k per project – you can see the 2021 grant application rounds below:

  • Round 1 runs 1 May 2021 to 30 June 2021. Funding theme: health and wellbeing.
  • Round 2 runs between 1 September 2021 and 31 October 2021. Funding theme: community cohesion and growth.
