VCSE Grants 2024
South Gloucestershire Council have opened a consultation regarding potential changes to the VCSE (Voluntary, Community Social Enterprise) Grants application process.
The budget for VCSE services will be £155,000 per year. This funding stream will form a new grants programme called The Community Health and Wellbeing Action Fund (CHWA).
They want to work with the public, partners and organisations to develop a grant programme process that works well for everyone involved.
If you are a member of the public who has or will potentially use these services, or part of an organisation that is interested in applying for a grant, they would like you to complete a questionnaire found here.
This consultation is open between 15 November 2023 to end of day 23 January 2024.
