New 2017 Grant Opportunities from United Way UK

  • United Way UK has announced new 'Give Local' grants for 2017.

    United Way UK collaborates with businesses and community partners in the voluntary sector to achieve positive change in education, income stability and health.

    What are ‘Give Local’ grants?

    'Give Local' grants are £1,000 grants given to small charities and community groups who are benefitting local people in need.

    United Way believes that every person and organisation should be able to support their own, local community. ‘Give Local’ is a way to do this.

    People and businesses collectively give to a 'Give Local' pot, and 100% of the funds which they donate are then awarded to charities based within and benefitting their local community.

    Last year’s grants benefitted thousands of people in nearly 30 communities across the country. This film gives a few case studies

    Who can apply for a grant?

    The grants are available to small charities and organisations who help people within United Way's 'Give Local' communities. To find out if you work within one, and to download an application form, visit United Way Uk's dedicated web page before 30th June 2017. 

    Want to get involved?

    If you are a business and would like to establish ‘Give Local’ to benefit your local community through payroll giving, fundraising or volunteering, please do get in touch.
