Small Grants

Do you have an idea that can make a difference to our area? Our small grants are available to individuals and groups who want to make Knowle West:

  • A safer place
  • A friendlier place
  • A greener place
  • A cleaner place
  • An active place

Knowle West Alliance offer small grants of up to £100 to Knowle West-based residents, community groups, organisations or schools for projects that benefit the local community. For the current round of grants, the Alliance is partnering with Filwood Community Centre, as part of the Filwood Fantastic project, who also have a pot of money to offer grants of up to £250 or £500 for similar projects. Both funds have a list of criteria on the information sheet/application form and, for the £250/£500 grant, must also have a creative element.

HOW TO APPLY: Simply look at the grant information sheet and then fill in the one-page application form. For the KWA grant up to £100, as long as your idea is helping KW become either safer, friendlier, greener, cleaner or more active you will be invited to our application event to talk about what you hope to achieve. For the £250/£500 grant see the sheet for details.

If you want to talk through your project idea before applying or need help with the application form, just contact Frances, the Alliance Community Development Worker:

Email frances.coates@kwalliance.co.uk or phone 07942 677131 (Tues, Wed and Fri)

Together with Filwood Community Centre, we are planning a friendly online event in May 2020 where applicants will come along and talk about their ideas. If the technology is a problem, we can support you to access the event or arrange a safe alternative way for you to present your idea.
