  • The funding is for a maximum of 12 months unless it is a multi-year bid and then it is 3 years with a grant of up to a maximum of £10,000


Focus Areas for this year for Sutton Community Fund are:

Cost of living - the project helps people to deal with the rising cost of living, particularly  groups or communities who are more likely to be affected

An inclusive place for everyone - the project promotes equality, diversity and inclusion; this could be through delivering support for specific groups to reduce disadvantages, or taking actions to bring diverse communities together to make positive change or solve a problem

Action on climate change - the project promotes or delivers positive actions to reduce carbon emissions in Sutton and encourages people to adopt more sustainable behaviours (e.g. cycling, walking, recycling, reuse etc.)
