Funding! Derbyshire Voluntary Action Small Grants

Funding Opportunities

The Derbyshire Voluntary Action Small Grant Scheme is open for applications from small groups for funds to cover running costs.

Small Grant Application form and Guidance Notes 

During these COVID-19 affected times, there will be no closing date for applications. We will aim to get back to you with a decision within two weeks of receipt of your form. The maximum amount you can apply for is £1,000, but grants awarded are likely to be in the region of £500-£600. We will pause or close applications if necessary.

Please be aware that groups can only receive funds from this scheme once in any 12 month period - therefore if you have previously received a Derbyshire Voluntary Action Small Grant you have to wait a year before applying again. Please contact us if you are unsure when you last received a small grant.

If you are applying for the first time and new to Derbyshire Voluntary Action please complete the membership and database form below:
