Voluntary and community sector (VCS) grant funding review

Status: Closed

Opens: 22 December 2021 - Closes: 23 March 2022

What this consultation is about

In February 2019, we decided to undertake a comprehensive review of all of the grant funding that we provide, and set out our ambitions to develop a council-wide approach to the allocation of funding in the future.

The review has considered all of the grant funding we currently provide and has identified 62 specific grants which are awarded on a recurring annual basis to a range of VCS organisations. These 'recurring grants' have not been subject to review, despite having been made over many years.

Proposals could lead to changes which impact a number of VCS organisations operating across the county.

We would therefore like to hear from as many organisations, stakeholders and members of the public on proposals as possible.

A report to our Cabinet on 6 December 2021,agenda item 5a,  sets out further information in relation to the proposals. You should read the report before responding to this consultation.

We would be grateful to receive your views to help shape the next stage of the review process.

In the meantime, should you have any queries or require additional information or you need any clarification of the proposals before submitting your response, please do not hesitate to contact the Policy and Research team email

If you need a paper copy or information in a different format please contact Call Derbyshire tel: 01629 533190.
