Funding: Community Integration Grants Scheme

Oxfordshire Community Foundation’s Community Integration grants offer up to £5,000 to bring people from different backgrounds together

Grants of between £500 and £5,000 are available from Oxfordshire Community Foundation for groups that work in partnership to encourage mutual understanding and a sense of belonging to the wider community. Awarded by the High Sheriff of Oxfordshire, grants are available for community organisations that bring together groups across different cultures, age groups, faiths, class, abilities or life experiences.

Charitable organisations with a maximum income of £1 million a year are eligible to apply, and the closing date is 31st July 2018 at midday.

Grants will only be made for projects where two or more organisations with different beneficiary groups work together towards a shared goal. Joint projects might aim to address a particular social issue (for example, loneliness, skill-building, youth provision, family support), or could simply aim to break down preconceptions and build common ground. OCF or OCVA can help you develop your partnership.
