We have a range of funding streams available for community projects and charities based or working in South Yorkshire.

Check the information below to find out your eligibility and how to apply.

South Yorkshire Community Resilience Fund

We know that Covid-19 has hit our communities hard, but it has been inspiring to see charities, social enterprises and local community groups pulling together and achieving remarkable things. However, just at the moment when our communities need them the most, charities and community organisations have seen their income devastated by Covid-19 and the lock-down.

That’s why the South Yorkshire Community Resilience Programme will make grants to charities and community organisations delivering essential services to vulnerable people: supporting the resilience of these vital charities and community organisations.
