Elmley Small Grts Information



Grants for the Arts Available……..


Arts Grants in general have been reduced, but Elmley Arts Small Grants Fund continue to support the Arts within Herefordshire & Worcestershire.


Grants of up to £1,000 are available for community-led, community-managed arts-based events and activities and for community-owned arts equipment.

Funded by the Elmley Foundation, the Events and Activities grant can help local groups to organise new arts and cultural activities, particularly in areas where these kinds of events rarely take place. Applicants are expected to show that people from all walks of life will be encouraged to take part, either as participants or as part of the audience.

The Arts Equipment grant enables community groups to purchase equipment which will help to improve access to the arts locally and applicants will need to show that the equipment will make a long-lasting impact and will be used regularly by a range of groups in the community.


The next round for Elmley applications is fast approaching as the deadline for applications is 12th September with the Panel Meeting on 3rd October.


Please apply now by visiting http://www.comfirst.org.uk/elmley_small_grants_arts_fund or contacting Cheryl Cooney 01684 312730
