CCF Cheshire and Warrington Small Grants Programme

Cheshire Community Foundation are particularly interested in supporting smaller charities through this programme  (with a turnover of less than £300,000) and to assist local grassroots organisations that support one, or more, of the following priority areas:

  • Disadvantaged and vulnerable people affected by the covid-19 outbreak
  • Homelessness
  • Education and skills (for ages 3 to 18)
  • Community support – to include support for older people
  • Disadvantaged and exploited young people, with a preference for prevention and early intervention projects

Please note: The CCF Warrington Older Peoples Grant application has been incorporated into this new programme and CCF are keen to reassure applicants that work for older people in Warrington remains a priority.
