Grants available to help community groups

Grants are being made available for local community or voluntary groups in Bolsover District to help them develop community facilities and activities.

The grant scheme has been developed in partnership with Efficiency East Midland and applications for the scheme are welcomed from those that can demonstrate local support for a project.

If you know of, or are involved in, a community group that you think could benefit from this funding then why not apply? To qualify for the award the group must:

  • Help bring communities together
  • Improve quality of life
  • Benefit tenants/residents in an area where we have properties.

In December 2022, twelve groups all received £415 each to help towards their activities, new equipment or transport and general running costs.

The groups were: Hodthorpe and Belph Baby and Toddler Group, The Tom Henson Charity, Freedom Community Project, The Community Unity Project, Clowne Comets Junior Football Club, Whitwell Forward, Pinxton and Brookhill Community Group, Whitwell Community Choir, Shirebrook Neighbourly Allotment Group, Rhubarb Farm, Oxcroft Bowls Club and Boza Youth Inc.

Council Chair, Councillor Tom Munro said, “Even though it’s not huge sums of money, grants such as these can often mean the difference between a club’s survival or it disbanding. We realise the importance of these clubs and the part they play in our local communities, and we are pleased that we are able to help support them in this way.”

The deadline for groups applying for the grant scheme is 27 September 2023. Please contact Catherine Ford on 01246 593060 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (opens in a new window) for an application form or for more information.
