Greggs Local Community Projects Fund

 

 

 

Grants of up to £2,000 are offered to organisations supporting people in need. Any not for profit organisation can apply however, larger organisations with a turnover in excess of £300,000 are unlikely to be successful.

Greggs are interested in projects that improve resilience within communities. This can include sessional activities/respite support, equipment for sessional activities, trips and residential breaks. They are also interested in new approaches and innovative ideas as well as sustainable approaches to supporting your community.

All projects must support a community of interest, for example people who are:

  • Disabled or suffering chronic illness
  • Living in poverty
  • Voluntary carers
  • Homeless people
  • Isolated older people
  • Other demonstrable significant need

Successful applicants should be able to demonstrate improvements against at least one of the following outcomes:

  • Beneficiaries have decreased social isolation
  • Beneficiaries report improved health and wellbeing
  • Beneficiaries report improved resilience/coping mechanisms
  • Beneficiaries have improved life skills
  • Beneficiaries have improved opportunities
