Action grants

Our Action Grants scheme is offering hundreds of grants to groups who are planning projects to benefit their communities.


So far we've awarded Action Grants totalling £375,000 to 462 groups across Derbyshire since May 2018.

We've been supporting some great activities. You can see details of all the recipients attached to this page. There's still over £1million left in the pot before the scheme finishes in May 2020.

We want to hear from you if:

  • you're involved with a community organisation like a sports club, youth group, choir, neighbourhood watch or many others
  • you arrange activities for local people
  • you are planning an event for your town or village
  • you want to start a new group

Your project needs to promote one or more of the following themes:

  • community activity
  • community safety
  • youth activity
  • physical activity and sport

The grants are easy to apply for and we'll give you any support that you may need with the application process. A programme pack is attached to this page.

The deadlines for the remaining rounds of applications are:

  • 31 January 2020
  • 31 May 2020

We'll give you a decision in less than 4 weeks after each closing date.

The Action Grants programme has all the details about how to apply and who's eligible, and an application form.
