The Community Choices Small Grants programme offers residents the opportunity to suggest project and activity ideas they want to make happen and to receive public funds in their ward to do it.

The programme supports anyone with a project idea that will make a difference to people living in the Falkirk area. Examples of successful projects range from a local youth theatre to a dementia support group. Also successful in securing funds were local youth organisations, a mental health support charity and numerous local sports clubs.

Who can apply?

Constituted community groups and organisation are eligible. Funds up to £5000 are available if you are successful in the public vote.

Your organisation should have:

  • A group constitution
  • A Group Bank Account and 3 months of bank statements
  • A recent set of independently examined Annual Accounts or management accounts (if less than 1 year old)

It may be possible to connect an idea to an existing group if that might be needed. Please get in touch early to discuss with us and we can help.

The Small Grant Fund aims to make communities fairer, healthier, more connected and more inclusive and your group can put forward your project ideas under any of these aims.

The public vote for the Small Grants fund of Community Choices has resulted in funds being awarded to sixty community projects for a total of almost £160,000.
