Derbyshire Dales: UKSPF Grants available to support Community Resilience

Active Derbyshire, Funding, News

A new grants programme is open, supporting community projects in the Derbyshire Dales. The Community Resilience Grants scheme is available for charities, voluntary organisations, social enterprises and parish councils to bid into. Funding for revenue and capital projects is available, with a maximum of £25,000 being available for capital projects.

The grants programme is managed by ourselves (Derbyshire Dales Council for Voluntary Service) on behalf of Derbyshire Dales District Council.

This fund is part of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and Rural England Prosperity Fund (REPF) which was awarded to DDDC.

The fund aims to enable local organisations to deliver projects that:

• Maintain key rural services, facilities and community infrastructure.
• Boost community and volunteering capacity to tackle locally identified challenges.
• Enhance social inclusion and resilience.
• Support post-pandemic recovery and help maintain safe and healthy communities.
• Take local action on climate change to help reduce carbon emissions and promote behaviour change.

Organisations wishing to apply for some of the funding must first register on the District Council’s website.
