Esmee Fairbairn Small Grants

Grants under £1,000

The Purpose of the Fund: to support and strengthen small Community Organisations operating in the rural areas, market and coastal towns of the South West Region.

The focus will be on activities that enable people from diverse backgrounds to become engaged in their neighbourhoods and communities and to support those organisations that are bringing about real change to the lives of the people who live in those communities.

Priority will be given to:

  • small community organisations that are addressing the needs of people in their communities by engaging people in community activity either as volunteers or as people benefiting from  the funded activities
  • charitable organisations with annual running costs under £25,000 although organisations with slightly larger running costs that can demonstrate a small amount of funding will make a real difference, may be considered in exceptional circumstances if they meet the rest of the criteria
