We haven’t run an item on Awards for All for a while, so we thought this would be a good opportunity to remind subscribers that this is an excellent - and quite probably the UK’s leading, -small grants scheme with an astonishing track record for a national scheme. It continues to fund 6 out of 10 applications.
Applications can be made by:
o Registered Charities
o Voluntary groups,
o Schools,
o Town and Parish Councils,
o Health bodies, including NHS Hospital Trusts and Foundation Hospitals
o Social enterprises, including CIC’s, Co-operatives and Friendly Societies and other companies that are not-for-profit.
Grants between £300 and £10,000 are available with no match funding requirement.
Organisations can apply for up to £10,000 in any 12 month period and repeat applications are welcomed from organisations with an annual turnover of less than £30,000 in their last financial year.
Awards for All particularly encourages applications from new groups, which is quite distinct from many grant providers, who prefer applicants to have established a track record of delivering successful projects.
The programme will fund projects that meet one or more of the following outcomes:
•People have better chances in life - with better access to training and development to improve their life skills.
•Stronger communities - with more active citizens working together to tackle issues within the community.
•Improved rural and urban environments - which communities are better able to access and enjoy.
•Healthier and more active people and communities.
One of the best things about Awards for All is that it encourages applications to be made online and doesn’t ask for any supporting information until an application has been assessed and a grant offer is on the table.
A few years ago, Awards for All would accept applications for arts, heritage and sports projects, but these all have their own small grant programmes which, in our view, are significantly more difficult to access than Awards for All. For details of these small grant schemes, click on the following links:
Applications to Awards for All can be submitted at any time and normally take up to 4 months to assess.
If you've got a project that fits into any of the Awards for All outcomes we strongly urge you to consider applying to this exemplary grant scheme - and if you need any advice on how to present a case for funding, we're happy to help (just email us
