Funding Programmes - Local Priorities

As part of our role as the Area Lead Organisation we run a number of grant programmes.  The following funding programmes are now open. 


Please read through the guidance notes before completing your application.


Please complete, sign and return applications to Van Henry.


From our knowledge of local needs it has been agreed that the  following local

priorities will underpin all our grants:

  • Community Cohesion – tension between new and existing communities, and issues between students and permanent residents;

  • Crime & Community Safety;

  • Food & fuel poverty;

  • Loneliness and isolation - especially among senior citizens;

  • Mental Health – both primary and secondary (diagnosed and low level); and

    Translation and conversational English support, especially among the new and emerging communities (i.e. North African, Eastern Europe and Roma);


Children & Young People Programme

Our delivery partners are signed up for the next three years, and we will only have an open funding process if a new need becomes identified or a current organisation stops delivering their work. For further information about our delivery partners click here.


As well as our main programme, we also fund a 'Summer Activities Programme'.

Other Funding

Nottingham Together      

Nottingham Together is about how well people get on with others from different backgrounds. The Nottingham Together Grants aim 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. Migration can bring real benefits to Nottingham, our culture, economy and way of life. Nottingham is a welcoming city, open and compassionate as we have shown in welcoming people in need. 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.
