Worcester City Council has an ambitious strategic plan, the Worcester City Plan 2022-2027 sets out the collective vision of political leaders in the city. We recognise the key to delivering on the plan will be how we work with residents and stakeholders across Worcester to create a successful, vibrant and sustainable City. The City Plan has five overlapping and interconnected themes which will shape the Worcester we want to see.

To support the delivery of the City Plan, Worcester City Council has set aside a Worcester Community grant pot to support organisations delivering services on the front line of our communities.

Funding is available to community groups, charities, and voluntary sector organisations to support new community projects in Worcester.

Our Worcester Community Grants has now opened as of April 1  2022 with grants available to a maximum threshold of £5000. It is strongly recommended that grants should be applied for at least two months before the event as the grants panel meets at the beginning of the month.
