Nationwide Community Grants

Nationwide Building Society has launched a new community funding scheme to tackle housing issues at a local level.

Grants of up to £50,000, over one or two years, are available for projects that support vulnerable people with their housing needs.

Eligible applicants must be a UK registered charity, Community Land Trust or housing co-operative.

Heart of England Community Foundation (HoECF) is leading on this programme in Central England, working with neighbouring Community Foundations in Leicestershire & Rutland, Bedfordshire & Luton, Northamptonshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Hampshire & Isle of Wight, Surrey and Hertfordshire.

Applications will be assessed by HoECF and then considered by a community board, which is comprised of Nationwide members, employees and housing experts.

You can apply for:

  • Staff/Volunteer costs for project delivery
  • Development and capacity building costs
  • Activity costs
  • Small scale capital costs (e.g. items for project delivery such as computers,
    paint, gardening equipment)
  • Building works and refurbishment costs – where they are essential to the
    successful delivery of the project
