06/06/16 Surrey County Council Community Improvement Fund
Need funding for something your community will love?
The Community Improvements Fund has been running for four years and can make a project a reality. It’s designed to help people turn a great idea into something real that will benefit people in their community. This year there is extra funding available to support projects that will improve local shopping areas/parades.
The types of things you can get funding for are:
- Disabled access to a venue, premises or row of shops
- A mini-bus to help elderly people get around
- Cycle parking or seating by your local shopping parade or community facility
About the fund
The grants are available to cover capital costs for community infrastructure projects. For community improvement projects you can apply for a grant of £10,000 to £30,000, for shopping parade projects the minimum grant is £5,000 (up to £30,000). Ideally bids should be for things that support Surrey County Council’s strategic objectives of making sure everyone in Surrey has a great start to life and can live and age well, and that Surrey’s economy remains strong and sustainable.
