Brighton & Hove City Council Communities Fund: Resilience Fund

Grants available for: Community and voluntary groups in Brighton & Hove
Size of grants given: Up to £10,000
Next deadline: 8th July 2022

Aims of Fund

To support local community groups, voluntary organisations, and not-for-profit social enterprises to respond to the city’s changing needs around the climate, poverty and inequality.

Who can apply

Applications are open to locally-based community and voluntary organisations with incomes up to £100,000 a year. The Resilience Fund aims to support groups already working with local people and communities.

If you are a new group or a smaller organisation, with an income of up to £20,000 a year, the Council’s Engagement Fund might be a better fit for you.

How much and what can you apply for

Up to £10,000

Funding from the resilience fund can usually be used for core costs of the group or organisation, project costs or a combination of both, as well as small items of equipment.

Your activities must contribute to at least one of the following outcomes:

  • improving wellbeing
  • building cohesion
  • promoting fairness

How to apply

Applications must be made via the council’s Community Fund online portal. You can preview the questions in the application form on the Council’s website.

Deadlines for application

Deadlines remaining for 2022 are:

Round 2 for part costs and later starts – 8 July 2022
Round 3 for final quarter costs – 14 October 2022
