1.  High Wycombe Town Community Support Grant

An annual budget of £10,000 is available to provide grants to voluntary and community sector organisations based in High Wycombe town (the unparished area of High Wycombe). These are to specifically assist towards one-off projects, events and activities that are time-limited and directly benefit High Wycombe town residents.

2.  High Wycombe Town Community Facility Grant

There is an annual budget of £10,000 to provide grants to facilities which have community use as their primary purpose and are in High Wycombe town (the unparished area of High Wycombe). These grants enable community facilities within High Wycombe town to make building improvements and to help fund essential works to ensure that they can remain available for public use.

3.  Community and arts grants

Community grants fall into two main categories: small grants up to £1,500 and larger annual revenue grants of £1,500 upwards. Budgets are limited so all applications must include evidence of need and provide assurance that services will provide value for money.

  • Up to £1,500
    These grants provide capital funding to voluntary and community sector organisations to assist towards one-off projects, events and activities to directly benefit their local communities within Wycombe district. Funding is available through a rolling grant programme which means that organisations can apply for grant at any
  • Annual revenue grants: £1,500 and above
    Applications for these larger grants are accepted once a year for funding in the next financial year. Annual revenue grants are awarded as a contribution towards an organisation's core costs, enabling them to continue to provide services throughout the year.
