This funding is allocated to bring together local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from local people, groups and organisations who want to make Bourne an even better place to live.

Do you have an idea that you want to get off the ground? Or perhaps you need support with running costs for your group?

Bourne Big Local’s Community Chest is a small grants fund for residents, community groups and business start ups within the Bourne Big Local area. It is available to residents who have an innovative idea which needs a cash boost to make it happen, and to individuals and community groups who may need some additional support to carry out their projects.

Residents of any age within the Bourne Big Local area can apply for a grant of up to £1000 from the Community Chest as long as it meets one of the four Bourne Big Local priorities:

Improving health and wellbeing
Creating a more attractive environment
Building community spirit
Encouraging enterprise
