Other Funding

Nottingham Together - Grant Funding 2018

Nottingham Together is about how well people get on with others from different backgrounds and the grant programme aims to support and develop activities that promote coming together, cohesion or neighbourliness amongst and between Nottingham’s communities. 


The funding has been allocated to Nottingham from central Government to help make Nottingham an even friendlier place to live and work.  Grants are aimed at achieving the best benefits for established resident communities, and enabling or encouraging cohesion and integration amongst newer communities in our City.  Most organisations working within the City can apply for grants between £50 and £1,000 and must:-

  • demonstrate how they will bring different groups together
  • submit their governing document with their application
  • include relevant DBS checks

Note: if the funding is for a one-off event, you will need to contact the Nottingham Together team before applying.
