To help deliver the priorities of Leicestershire County Council's Communities Strategy, the SHIRE Community Grant programme will enable voluntary and community sector organisations (including social enterprises and Town/Parish Councils) to deliver community-based projects, services and activities which help to improve the lives of vulnerable people in Leicestershire.

Eligible organisations will be able to access grants of up to £10,000 and/or smaller grants of up to £3,000 for community based projects and activities that are focused on supporting vulnerable/disadvantaged people and communities.

We are particularly interested in funding new and innovative projects that will:

  • support the most vulnerable individuals and communities in Leicestershire
  • provide early intervention and prevention based solutions
  • complement existing services already being delivered

Although applications can be submitted at any time, bi-monthly deadlines for applications have been scheduled for:
