Community Grants

Improving communities for future generations

Our Community Grants provide funding of up to £2,500 to local groups, charities and causes. As a OneFamily customer you can give something back to the groups that are important to you and the local people in your area by nominating them to receive a Community Grant.

We’ve helped more than 200 fantastic good causes boost their impact and deliver change through projects across the UK. Our Community Grants have helped disability charities invest in their resources, community groups tackle isolation amongst the older generation and schools invest in their pupils’ future. And it’s thanks to our customers we’ve made it all possible.
