Big Local Shadsworth with Whitebirk

The Big Local Shadsworth with Whitebirk Small Grants Programme is being run by Community CVS on behalf of the Shadsworth with Whitebirk Big Local Partnership. The fund is a part of the £1million Big Local Ten Year Programme for Shadsworth with Whitebirk.

  • The fund is open to ward residents and local charities, social enterprises, voluntary or community groups (i.e. not for profit organisations) and the activity must benefit residents of Shadsworth with Whitebirk
  • The group must not directly employ any paid members of staff.
  • The group must be run by volunteers and use volunteers to deliver its activities.

If residents have a good idea for a project but are not part of a community group, you can still submit an application.  The panel will ask a local community group to hold the grant on your behalf and the community group will be responsible for ensuring the money is accounted for appropriately and project reports are submitted to Community CVS.

The criteria and weight we will use to assess your application will be:-

  1. Meeting the Big Local’s six objectives & Community Impact for your project (50%)
  2. Value for Money (25%)
  3. Involving volunteers & local residents to deliver your project (25%)
