There are two types of funding: small Grants and Large Grants. The form for the small grant is very simple, but we need more detail for the larger awards. Please read the aims of Dover Big Local and the guidance document before filling in your form to make sure a project you would like to have funded fits within our plan or we may not be able to help you. It may be helpful to talk to one of out team too. You an make an appointment via the Hub.
We want to know about your ideas, so please send us and outline of your project – we may be able to guide you in helping your ideas meet the funding guidelines before you start work on the form. You can start to prepare your application by:

Dover District Council is offering grant funding to community groups that can show benefit to the local area, and groups are invited to apply for individual grants from £100 up to £1,000.
Last year, more than £22K was allocated to 29 different community groups across the district, including the Deal Community Sports Football Club, Guston Village Hall Trust, Skillnet Group Community Interest Company (CIC), Dover Castle Archers, and the Sandwich Concert Band.
Community groups can bid for funding for projects that provide cultural, sporting, recreational, health, environmental, heritage, community safety, crime reduction or educational benefits to the local community
Each county councillor can award £20,000 in grants, which can be used to support a lot of different activities, including:
Sport England is providing grants of between £50,000 and £500,000 over a maximum term of four years to partners that have a successful track record in changing behaviour with families in lower socio-economic groups. These organisations do not necessarily need to be related to sport or physical activity but they do need to be eligible to apply for National Lottery funding. Sport England may look to broker partnerships between organisations submitting Expressions of Interest where appropriate.
The grants can cover both revenue and capital costs for projects that offer new activities for families with children, particularly those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, to get active and play sport together.
Eligible projects must help to achieve at least one of the following three outcomes:
· Increase activity levels of families in lower socio-economic groups whose children are not doing 60 minutes a day of physical activity.
· Support families to be active together throughout the week.
· Deliver positive experiences.
All projects must target children aged between 5 and 15 years. Priority may be given to projects which target those aged between 5 and 10 years.
