Grants for Neighbourhood and Community Event fees and charges

Neighbourhood Grants

Neighbourhood Grants can help you organise local projects and events which benefit your local area.

Each Local Committee can provide a Neighbourhood Grant of up to £1000. Voluntary organisations, local charities and community groups can apply to their Local Committee. Check if you're eligible.

We particularly encourage applications which are:

  • inclusive
  • promote community development
  • support mental and physical wellness
  • challenge racism
  • tackle climate change

You'll need to apply for a Neighbourhood Grant at least 2 months before your event. We can't provide funding later than this or after your event has taken place.

Get in touch

Contact neighbourhoodgrants@sutton.gov.uk if you are interested in applying for a  Neighbourhood Grant or Community Events Fees and Charges Grant. Please note that applications for some local areas are closed as all the funding has been allocated for 22/23. 

Community Event Fees and Charges Grant

You can apply for a Community Event Fees and Charges Grant to help with the costs of running your event.

You can use the grant for costs of things like road closures, insurance, waste services or event licences.

You can apply for the Event Fees and Charges Grant alongside Neighbourhood Grant funding, or on its own.

Who can apply

You're eligible to apply if you're:

  • a voluntary or community group
  • a local charity
  • a self-help group

Your project must be within the relevant wards of the Local Committee. We can't fund individuals. Read the guidance notes for more information.
