Haydon Wick Grants Programme

This programme is open to charities, CICs & community groups based in, or whose work substantially benefits, the people of Haydon Wick or its immediate areas

Which organisations are eligible for funding?

Grants of up to £3,000 are available to support projects based in, or whose work substantially benefits, the people of Haydon Wick or its immediate areas. You can apply for a grant if you are:

  • a constituted voluntary or community organisation
  • a registered charity
  • a not-for-profit company or Community Interest Company where a majority of the directors receive no payment from the company


Your organisation must have:

  • an active management committee of at least three people who are not related to each other, living at the same address or in a long-term relationship
  • a bank account with two signatories who are unrelated to each other
  • less than 12 months running costs in unrestricted reserves. This means in your accounts at the end of your last financial year, the amount shown as Unrestricted reserves (not including any Designated funds) must be less than your expenditure during that year

The documents you need are:

  • a constitution
  • an Equal Opportunities Statement
  • a Child Protection Policy or Vulnerable People Policy (over 18 years) and procedures if you are working with children or vulnerable adults
  • a copy of a recent bank statement

What types of projects are eligible for funding?

Funding can be used to:

  • continue the work your organisation already does
  • pay for a new activity which can include:
    • core costs - these might include (but not only) salaries, training, equipment, insurance or premises
    • projects costs - these might include (but not only) salaries, training, equipment, insurance or premises
    • capital costs (buildings and equipment) - grants for capital costs are one-off only (i.e. not multi-year) and if the cost of the project is more than the grant, you must have already secured most of the rest you need when you apply to us

You must plan to start spending the grant within six months of when it is awarded.

What we don’t fund:

  • schools
  • preschool or nursery running costs
  • county councils
  • one-off or sponsored events
  • projects which duplicate an existing service
  • the advancement of religion
  • medical research and equipment
  • animal welfare
  • party political activities
