For Local

Shropshire RCC administers a number of grants schemes through the Shropshire Community Fund to support groups to improve their community and the lives of local people.

 A list of recent approved grant applications can be viewed here.

Village Halls Week 2020 Grant Fundmore

We have £1,000 available to distribute between Shropshire village halls to help host a celebration event for Village Halls Week 2020.

Village Halls Week is an initiative delivered by the RCC Network and co-ordinated by our national organisation, ACRE (Action with Rural Communities in England). It celebrates rural community spaces and the people whose time and dedication keep them going. In 2020 it will run between Monday 20 January and Sunday 26 January.

In Shropshire we would like village halls to host an event which promotes their hall and encourages local people in the community to come and see what is on offer. We also want village halls to use this opportunity to raise additional funds for their hall during the event – “the gift that keeps on giving”.

Closing date for applications: Thursday 28 November

Millichope Fund for Community Buildingsmore

Shropshire RCC has been asked by the Millichope Foundation to administer a fund for the benefit of community buildings in Shropshire. The fund provides small grants of up to £500 to enable village halls and community centres to purchase items of equipment to help meet the needs of their local community.

Examples of things that have been funded previously include:

  • Hearing loops or equipment to assist disabled users
  • Tables, chairs and other furniture
  • Kitchen equipment (eg white goods or crockery)
  • Replacement water heaters or radiators
  • Curtains, draught excluders and other insulation
  • Audio and visual equipment (eg a PA system) and portable staging

The fund cannot contribute to general running costs, staff salaries, volunteers expenses, large capital projects or resurfacing of car parks.

Next deadline: 11 November 2019

Shropshire Grassroots Fundmore

The Shropshire Grassroots Fund aims to increase the availability of grant funding to build the capacity and sustainability and support for small voluntary and community groups and organisations (grassroots groups).

Grants up to £500 are available to small grassroots community and voluntary groups in Shropshire which have an annual turnover of less than £50,000 per annum. The Fund prioritises applications for requests which can be demonstrated to have a long term benefit for organisations to help them grow and develop. This can include core costs to help organisations extend their reach to more people, and widen their work.

Examples of the type of request we are keen to fund could include training (for staff and volunteers), volunteer expenses, furniture and equipment, promotional materials, and room hire. The fund cannot make a contribution to general appeals. It cannot fund on-going staff salaries, large capital build projects, parties or other one off events.
