Innovation Fund

The Sutton Innovation Fund is a new fund that’s available for smaller organisations to bid for innovative projects that will benefit the local community.Innovation Fund logo

The Innovation Fund has been designed for small groups to come up with new ideas/innovation to develop their organisation and raise their profile.

Applications will need to demonstrate how you meet the one or more of the priorities listed below:

  1. Improving Health and Wellbeing
  2. Community Cohesion
  3. Young People
  4. Reducing Social isolation

What you need to know

We are trailing a new approach and are asking for applications to be send via video. The video should be a short 2-minute clip, explaining what is new and innovative about the project and what needs the idea can address.

Please note - only the first 2 minute of any video submitted will be watched.

The Sutton Innovation Fund is made up of two stages:

  • Stage one – submit your proposal through a video
  • Stage two – if you are successful we will work with you to develop your project further.


Closing date for Round 2 video applications - 8th July  2022
