CLOSING SOON: DfC Small Capital Grants Applications 2018

01 February 2018

Apply for funding for a Small Capital Grant to support local volunteer involvement.

This is a DfC initiative which is being administered by Limavady Community Development Initiative (LCDI) who have been appointed as an Intermediary Funding Body (IFB). Any grant awarded will be for a maximum of 5,000 and will directly support the key objectives of the DfC Volunteering Strategy and Action Plan.
Note: This grant is only eligible for expenditure incurred from the date of award until 31 March 2018.

The deadline for return of completed applications is 12noon Thursday 1st February 2018.  

The grant is focused on partnership and collaboration between organisations (so groups must come together in order to be eligible to apply)

  • 2 partner groups = can apply for 1,500
  • 3-4 partner groups = can apply for up to 3,500
  • 5+ partner groups = can apply for up to maximum 5,000

Due to this tight deadline (and to enable quick turnaround) LCDI are only accepting applications through the application form below rather than through an online portal. 

The application form should be completed and emailed along with all the supporting documents (constitution; volunteer policy; bank statement; accounts/income & expenditure; partnership agreement) to: smallgrants@lcdi.co.uk 

For any further information, please contact Johnny McShane, Small Grants Manager
