Small Grants Fund

The Small Grants Fund aims to build the capacity of communities to deliver services which ensure people are able to look after and improve their own health and wellbeing and live in good health for longer.  Funding is available to support the delivery of projects across all adult services.

Small GrantsIn particular we are looking for new and innovative projects that test new ways of working for your organisation, your community and/or Dundee. Funding is not, therefore, available to continue funding existing projects or staff posts. In particular we are looking for projects that adopt a co-productive way of working, i.e. involving stakeholders in the design, delivery and evaluation of projects.

There are two types of funding:

  • Level 1 – grants of up to £800
  • Level 2 – grants of between £800 and £7500

All funding should be spent within a year of the grant being awarded. Funding is not recurring.


Application Deadlines

Level 1 applications can be submitted at any time.

Level 2 applications are assessed by  a panel of  third sector / community representatives.

The next deadline for Level 2 applications is Thursday 8 February 2018, 5pm.

The panel will meet on Thursday 22nd February 2018.
