Bromsgrove District Council Equality Small Grants Scheme 2021-22 is OPEN!


Bromsgrove District Council, in partnership with the Bromsgrove Engagement and Equalities Forum, have launched their Equality Small Grants Scheme!

The aim of the Bromsgrove District Council Equality Small Grants Scheme is to enable smaller voluntary, charitable or community organisation/group that operate in Bromsgrove District to deliver an achievable project that would benefit the community and challenges inequality, advances equality and/or celebrates diversity. It is a small grants scheme and is specifically for smaller voluntary, charitable or community organisations/groups who would find it hard to meet the criteria of bigger grants.

It is open for one round only and will support projects or activities being delivered between 1 July 2021 to 31 March 2022. The max limit for year is £750 per funding request, although please do only apply for the amount needed. The £750 limit applies if you are submitting a joint bid with another organisation unless you are bidding for different projects under a shared theme.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 9th June 2021 at Midday.

Applications received after this date and time will not be accepted.

The Grant Application Form and Guidance is attached or available from

Please do read the guidance as there have been some small changes. We are more than happy to talk over any ideas, read applications prior to submission and provide any additional guidance if required. Please spread the word about this opportunity and if you have any queries or questions, please do contact me.

In addition to this small grant scheme, there is another opportunity for 2021-22 to apply for a larger grant. If you are a larger voluntary, charitable or community organisation/group or your project requires more than £750 to be delivered, please consider applying for the Community Grants Scheme 2021/22 instead. The Community Grants Scheme replaces the New Home Bonus Community Grants Scheme but will follow the principles of that original scheme and applications will be limited to a maximum of £5,000 per project. There is £80,000 available and more information can be found here.

All the best and we look forward to receiving your application.

Kind regards
