Apply now for a 'Your Kingston' grant

Local voluntary, community and faith groups in Kingston are invited to apply for a ‘Your Kingston’ grant (second round).

The programme, which launched on Wednesday (1 August) enables local organisations to apply for grants of up to £750.

The money is designed to encourage organisations to think about projects or activities which will support and engage communities, benefit the borough’s residents and help to deliver at least one of Kingston Council’s community outcomes.

Successful local organisations who have already been awarded a Your Kingston Grant this year include: Mill Street Residents’ Association, Kingston Chinese Association, Fastminds, Kingston Environment Centre, Korean British Cultural Exchange, Kingstonian Cricket Club and La Leche League Kingston.

All applications need to be for new projects and any applications by the same organisation for repeat activities will not be considered. Successful organisations who were awarded a grant in the spring 2018/19 grant programme are not eligible to apply this round. However, groups can apply for different projects or activities to meet the changing needs of their communities in different years.

The deadline for applications for 2018/19 funding is Friday, 7 September 2018. Details on how to apply and an application form can be found on the council’s website.
