Source Locality

You can receive grants and support to help you complete your neighbourhood plan.

There are two types of support available in the 2015-2018 programme:

  • Grants of up to £9,000
  • Technical support packages provided by our partner, AECOM, and an additional grant package of £6,000 (bringing the grant ceiling amount available to £15,000).
  • For more information click here

£50k to £250k for support volunteering in public services and new ways for people aged 50+ to engage in digital social action.

The Fund provides £4 million in grants from DCMS and £750,000 in non-financial support from Nesta.

Depending on the maturity of the idea, the following awards are available for innovations in all four priority areas:

  • Early Stage Ideas track - grants of between £50,000 and £75,000, along with non-financial support over 12-18 months to test concepts.
  • Growing Great Ideas track - grants of between £100,000 and £250,000, along with two years of non-financial support, are available for innovations already in place and ready to scale.

Closing Date 30th October

It is expected that a total of around 20 innovations (through both tracks) will be funded.

The Connected Communities Innovation Fund will support the best innovations that mobilise many more people throughout the lifecourse, to support people and places to thrive, alongside public servicesShow more


Healthier Hackney & City Fund

Welcome back!

We're almost ready for another year of innovative health projects

Another summer has passed, and as we head into autumn there's one thing on our mind- year 4 of the Healthier Hackney Fund! We've been working hard to bring some exciting new aspects to the grants scheme, and are very nearly ready to share them with you.

The main news is that the Public Health team has been working closely with colleagues in the City and Hackney CCG to merge the Healthier Hackney Fund with their Innovation Fund. We're maintaining the same level of funding so this will now be a £500,000 pot, and will combine the principles and focus on innovation that has been central to both from the start.

Save the date

We'll be able to say much more about the structure and format when we launch formally on Thursday 19th October. Details of the event will follow next week, but please put a hold in your diary for the morning- as with last year it'll be a drop in event so we hope you'll be able to join us.

Don't worry if you can't make it- we'll be publishing the details on our webpage and will be touring as many local events as we can get in October and November. If you're running something you'd like us to attend please get in touch!
