Transform Grants

Funding for local community projects

Apply for up to £5,000 for local projects

Our  Transform  Grants  are  back  for  2021,  with  more  than  £50,000  up  for  grabs  to  support community projects which seek to tackle youth unemployment, promote social inclusion and improve the environment.

Applicants can apply for funding of up to £5,000 to help deliver their projects tackling one or more of these themes, with bonus points for proximity to our train services.

Applications open on 13th January 2021, and are set to close on the 7th February 2021, so you need to be quick to take advantage of this opportunity to make a difference in your area.

Submissions  go  through  an  initial  review,  with  the  best  applications  from  each  area progressing to vote, so it’s important that you clearly explain what your project is about and the benefits it will bring clearly and concisely.

Last year we received 74 applications, asking for more than £300,000, so competition is fierce, and we would recommend you get your applications in early.

How to apply

To help you with your application, we’ve put together an overview document which explains the application process.
