The fund is open to all voluntary organisations, resident, faith and community groups within Westminster. This includes schools and other establishments which care for Westminster residents (such as residential care homes).
All individual applications must be for under £10,000, and must benefit residents in a neighbourhood in Westminster.
Your project must support one of these themes:
- community leadership
- community cohesion and pride in your community
- environment and greening
- young people
For projects which are for single wards or smaller neighbourhood areas, the ward budget programme might be more appropriate for funding.
