SHIRE Grants 2022-23 Round 2 OPEN for Applications!

Round 2 of the SHIRE Community Grant programme for 2022-23 is now open for applications.

VCSE (Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise) sector organisations are able to apply for grants for community based projects and activities that are specifically focused on supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged people who live in Leicestershire.

We are particularly interested in funding services, projects and activities that will:

  • improve the lives, health and wellbeing of vulnerable or disadvantaged people and communities in Leicestershire
  • provide community-based early intervention and prevention solutions which help to reduce demand on Council and other public services
  • complement existing services already being delivered

The deadline for applications in Round 2 is Wednesday 7th September, and the application form, along with Guidance Notes and other useful information can be found via the link below.

If you have any queries or wish to discuss a SHIRE Grant application or project proposal with the Grants Team, please email:
