Grants for WW1 commemorative events

The London Borough of Sutton has made £20,000 of grant funding available to be allocated in small grants (maximum £500 or more by exception) to support local community organisations to deliver projects that commemorate the anniversary of the First World War. The money will be allocated from 2015 – 2018.

The fund is available for ‘not for profit’ organisations to support local, small scale projects that commemorate the First World War. Voluntary and community groups can apply if they have a name, agreed purpose or terms of reference and a bank or building society account. Where a group is coming together only for the purpose of putting on an event or activity it will need the support of an eligible organisation which is willing to receive the funds on behalf of the group. Applicants can only make one application in each financial year enabling us to support a number of projects from different groups.

There are no deadlines, you can apply at anytime but it could take up to 12 weeks for a decision so please ensure that you allow plenty of time before the activity is due to take place. Ensure that you read the guidance notes to give your application the best chance of success then complete this form and return to or post to:
