Community groups in the UK apply to Skipton Building Society’s Grassroots Giving programme from the 1st May until the 31st July 2018. A total of £82,500 is available to help small groups and organisations make a difference in their neighbourhood.
To be in with a chance of receiving an award, groups must show a real commitment to their local community and demonstrate how they will make a difference and enhance lives in the neighbourhood. Preference will be given to volunteer orientated groups, who are used to relying on minimal funds and the good will and generosity of members. The judges are looking for projects with ‘the greatest chance to progress ideas and activities with a lasting impact’. The application process includes a public vote.

The closing date for applications will be the 31st July 2018
