Funding & Fundraising

Canoe Foundation grant funding

Grants for clubs, community groups and regions across the UK with an active interest in wider canoeing participation.

The principle functions of the Canoe Foundation are to raise money; inform and educate; and allocate funds, in line with its main purpose to “support all to enjoy and benefit from the experience of paddling on our water in a sustainable manner”. The Foundation does this through grant making that facilitates improvements to suitable landing and launching points and by promoting the conservation of inland waterways for the benefit of all sectors of the community.

Home Office - Anti-Knife Crime Community Fund

Grants are available to voluntary and community sector groups for community projects in England and Wales which reduce knife crime and have a positive impact on young people who are at risk of carrying a knife and committing a crime.

The maximum grant available is £30,000 for single projects that are completed by 30 March 2020.

Voluntary and community sector groups and organisations in England and Wales can apply, including:

People Helping People Fund

Despite dramatically reduced funding which means that Staffordshire County Council cannot do everything it once did, or would like to do, we can still make Staffordshire a great place to live and work. This means the county council and all of our communities need to work together differently, where the county council continues to focus on fulfilling its legal obligations and supporting the most vulnerable people in our communities, and communities do more for themselves and others.

The Right Start: Income Generation & Funding

This training is funded by Staffordshire County Council. To access this session for FREE you must be a member of Support Staffordshire or Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services. Support Staffordshire reserves the right to charge you for your booking if you are not a member.

FREE places are restricted to TWO per organisation for this session so please check with your organisation before booking. Additional names can be added to a waiting list.

Huge funding boost for the Red Lion House Charity

Red Lion House; old pub to new community centre.

Work should restart at the beginning of July to convert the former Red Lion pub into a new community centre. The pub, on the corner of Rolleston Road and Horninglow Road North is believed to be Marston’s first pub, and their first brewery was across the road. The pub closed some years ago and was bought at auction to be converted into a local community centre by a new charity set up for the purpose.

Rural Development Fund

New Grant Alert!

The Rural Development Fund awards small grants of up to £1000 to small rural community groups across Staffordshire and Stoke, where they have a specific need.

The main beneficiaries of this fund are small community and voluntary groups in Staffordshire and Stoke, where their income is less than £30,000 per annum. The groups must be based or working in Staffordshire or Stoke and cannot be operating outside of the county. The aims of the project should be working towards the encouragement and promotion of developing rural community life.
