Community Grants

Clarion Futures Community Grants Programme

Do you have an idea for an innovative community project? Do you need financial help to bring your vision to life?

We offer grants ranging from £1,000 to £5,000 for projects supporting residents, delivering local initiatives and improving neighbourhoods.

What projects do we support?

We fund community projects and local activities that:

  • encourage community engagement and cohesion
  • promote health and wellbeing
  • engage young people or older people in positive activities
  • improve spaces, places and estate regeneration
  • reduce social isolation
  • improve access to training and educational activities
  • support work and activities in our community centres
  • find new ways of reaching Clarion Housing residents and the wider community.

For help developing your community project idea, or to find out how to best engage residents, please email our Clarion Futures Communities Team.
