Charnwood grants

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at

Please note: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all grants are currently suspended. For service updates, visit our coronavirus webpage. The Council, working with John Storer Charnwood, has launched Charnwood Community Action – a campaign to help support, advise and guide and co-ordinate groups and people who are volunteering to help others in the borough during the coronavirus pandemic.

We know there will be many people in our communities who need help and support during these times.

If you or someone you know needs help and support please visit the John Storer Charnwood website. More information can be found on the Charnwood Community Action webpage.

We recognise the value and contribution of individuals, voluntary sector organisations and other community-led projects and the benefits they provide to the residents of Charnwood. 

Through our Charnwood grant schemes we can provide a range of grants to help these organisations, groups and individuals access the funding support they need.

There are also a number of owner-occupier grants available to help with things such as disability, home repairs and bringing empty homes back into use.

Other sources of grant funding

There are a number of other organisations that can provide grant support. The following websites may help you to identify other suitable funding opportunities:

Charnwood community profiles

To further support you in applying for grants and funding, we have also provided profiles about different areas in Charnwood. These provide information, data and statistics about local areas that can be used as evidence to support your applications.

Sav Vaid, of Go-Getta CIC, explains in this video about how grants have helped the organisation run Anstey Youth Cafe.
