Community Awards explained

We run two rounds of Community Awards each year, which have helped communities fund projects such as supporting the members of a Alzheimer's choir, therapy rooms at hospices and playgroups for children with physical disabilities.

Each round, we'll award one project up to £25,000 and eight projects up to £5,000 in each of the following categories:

  • Health, disability and social care
  • Education (up to 500 students)
  • Education (more than 500 students)
  • Sports and social groups
  • Youth and affiliated organisations

We'll also be awarding seven projects up to £5,000 in our new Developing Skills category.

New category for 2016

This year, we are introducing a new category, Developing Skills, which enables individuals to acquire the skills that can benefit the wider community. The award will fund the training costs of seven people and provide funding up to £5,000 to each individual, awarded by a public vote.

Foundation in action

We estimate that, in 2015, 36,000 people benefited directly from our Community Awards. Find out more about previous winners and read their stories.
