Neighbourhood and Community Event Fees and Charges grants
What could your local group do with £1000?
Each Local Committee can allocate Neighbourhood Grants of up to £1000 to clubs and community groups delivering projects that benefit the residents of their local area.
The aims of the grant to are to promote community and voluntary activity in the local area, foster sustainable projects and support activities that the whole community can participate in.
Applications are welcome from voluntary, community and self-help groups who are formally constituted. Groups should apply to the relevant Local Committee where their project will be delivered and may be invited to a local committee meeting to talk about their project.
Please note that insurance should be applied for under Event Fees and Charges, not Neighbourhood Grants. Please be aware that applications made for a Neighbourhood Grant or for an Event, Fees and Charges Grant should be submitted 2 months prior to your event, late submissions will NOT be considered and we do not provide funding retrospectively
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions on social gatherings, we cannot award funding for any events unless they have been approved by the events team. For more information, please visit the events page
To discuss your project, provide feedback, complaints and compliments contact the Neighbourhood Grant team by contacting email@example.com.
Community Event Fees and Charges Grant
The Community Event Fees and Charges Grant is financed by the London Borough of Sutton to support the permissions required from the Council when organising events within the borough. Previously, the Council offered reduced costs for road closure, licenses etc., however, the London Borough of Sutton is no longer allowed to provide this offer.
To help support statutory legal event costs, the Community Event Fees and Charges Grant has been developed as a measure to help mitigate the financial impact upon community groups and organisations.
Who can apply?
