What is Grant Funding?

Grant fund­ing are awards The VCS Alliance dis­trib­utes on behalf of our com­mis­sion­ing and con­tract­ing part­ners. They dif­fer from con­tract­ing and com­mis­sion­ing in that they are intend­ed to give grass-roots and small­er com­mu­ni­ty organ­i­sa­tions access to light touch grant awards.

Grant fund­ing awards will always have a small­er val­ue than our con­tract­ing and com­mis­sion­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties. All our grant awards are either
Micro grants — £50 to £500
Small grants — £500 — £2500

All our micro and small grants are expect­ed to be deliv­ered with­in 12 months of the grant award. It may be a one off event, or a project that runs for 1 to 12 months. Often they may be small scale pilot projects.

These grants aim to:
Enable small­er grass-roots groups to devel­op a deliv­ery record
Tack­le health and well­be­ing issues in com­mu­ni­ties
Under­mine the wider social deter­mi­nants of health that impact in com­mu­ni­ties
Build capac­i­ty and resilience across the VCSE sector.
