New grant: The Big Help Out Grant

We are offering Big Help Out Grants to local voluntary, community, or not-for-profit organisations who are running events to support The Big Help Out, an initiative that aims to increase the number of volunteers getting involved locally. Activities could include taster sessions or special events.

The Big Help Out starts on 8 May 2023 in celebration of the King’s Coronation weekend. Activities can take place on 8 May, or beyond during 2023. Any grant awarded to an organisation is unlikely to exceed £250.
