Community Clean up Grant

Do you want to make a difference in your community? Do you have a plan ready to do this? Do you need funding to help complete this plan?community-clean-up-poster 2020

This grants scheme is administered on behalf of both Redditch Borough Council and Bromsgrove District Council by BARN to help any charity, organisation or community group that operates within one of these two areas. Round 3 is now open!

This grant scheme is intended to assist any voluntary, charitable or community group, that can clearly demonstrate their ability to deliver benefit to the community in the following ways through community led street clean up actions:

  • Increase pride in local high streets, village centres and estate centres
  • Increase community cohesion bringing people together to work with neighbours
  • Enhance social well-being as a result of increased volunteering
  • Increased volunteers from the local community to assist in maintaining the public realm

The focus for bids must be on high streets, estate centres or village centres.

The funding itself is a one off expenditure and not an ongoing one for years after. It is open to:

  • Voluntary groups
  • Charities
  • Community groups
  • Community Interest Company
  • Parish Councils
  • Schools
  • School Parent Teacher Associations

Both areas have separate applications based on which area you fall under.

Round 3 is now open for initial applications until Monday 16th May at 6pm! If any funding remains then applications will be considered on a rolling basis until all funding is allocated.

Did you receive funding in previous rounds? You can bid again, but only if all the following are true:

  • It must be for a different project
  • The previous project must have been completed
  • All monitoring forms have been satisfactorily completed and returned.
