Schemes:

Hammersmith and Fulham Council have limited grants available through the small grants programme. The programme is aimed at small VCS groups with no exclusion policy. Unfunded groups are particularly encouraged to apply. Grants are given between £100 to £5,000 to community groups in Hammersmith and Fulham, with amounts up to £10,000 occasionally considered.

There is no deadline for submitting complete applications, each application will be assessed as they arrive.

The council also has a funding newsletter which is distributed to over 900 organisations in Hammersmith and Fulham listing all current funding opportunities from local and central government, trusts and foundation to VSC groups in the area.

The council also advertises grants in the local newspaper and on the Hammersmith and Fulham Council website.

Charitable organisations and community operating in Hammersmith and Fulham also have free acces to the Funding Alert published by Sobus. Funding Alert is a monthly bulletin, which tells you about available funding from all sources, not just the council and gives you information relevant to voluntary, and community groups in the borou

More information regarding funding is available from the council's voluntary sector funding pages.


Many local authorities are now moving away from grant-making and beginning to use commissioning as a way to distribute funding to the third sector. Local commissioners can be difficult to find and identify, however NAVCA have created a guide that may help: "Finding your commissioner"
