Worcester City Council has an ambitious strategic plan, the Worcester City Plan 2016-2021 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 small and medium grant pots 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.

The funding threshold for small and medium grants is £1 - £2,000 and £2,001 - £15,000 respectively.

Please note the panel will only award the maximum amount of £15,000 in exceptional circumstances. This is to ensure the Council is able to support a variety of good causes each year. Therefore, it is recommended that you seek funding for up to £5,000 per application. It is 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.
