• Last chance to apply to Big Local fund



The Community Chest has been running for more than 30 years, and offers grants between £100 and £2,500 to small, volunteer led community groups in the city.

Grants are awarded twice a year from a total budget of £100,000, split roughly between two rounds

So far this year, nearly £48,000 in funding has been awarded to local community groups, and there’s a further £52,000 available to award in the second round.

The deadline for applications is October 31, 2017.

Community and voluntary organisations with an annual income of less than £250,000 supporting Southampton city residents are eligible to apply and local organisations with an annual income of less than £50,000 have priority.

Applications are accepted from local community groups and small voluntary organisations for a wide range of projects.

Application guidelines and forms are available on the council’s website at
