Any Colchester-based small-scale voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector organisations can apply. The organisation can be outside the BID zone, but the activities linked to this funding must take place within the BID zone.

The fund will provide up to £300 in funding to help you bring your idea to life; you could be celebrating your organisation’s anniversary, celebrating your amazing volunteers, celebrating a local hero, celebrating cultures, celebrating a historical event, or much more!

Applications opened on 5th May 2023 and will be offered on a rolling basis until all funds are spent. The panel will aim to meet on a regular basis to make decisions on applications; therefore, you are encouraged to get your applications in as soon as possible.

Please note: The project/event/activity must take place on or before 30th Sept 2023.
