Action Grants from DCC

Derbyshire County Council has just launched the Action Grants scheme and groups, clubs, local charities and other non-profit organisations working in communities across the county are eligible to apply.

Over the next two years there will be 2,000 grants of up to £500 on offer to help groups fund projects and events which will benefit their local communities. 750 grants are available as Youth Activity Grants to support projects and organisations working with young people.

The themes of the grants are:

  • Youth activity
  • Community safety
  • Community activity
  • Physical activity and sport

The first deadline is 30 June 2018, so groups hoping to get funding for schemes in the school summer holidays are advised to apply before that date.
