We Love Lichfield is an endowment fund, and provides funding to community and voluntary organisations across the whole Lichfield district, including in Burntwood and the surrounding villages. In 2017, Lichfield District Council devolved their local community grants to the We Love Lichfield fund, and there are currently 2 rounds of funding every year, one in May and one in November.
You can apply for a grant of up to £1,000.
These grants will be awarded to organisations that provide facilities or services for local people. The aim is to enhance the provision of service, provide new services, help to make organisations more efficient, or to improve the scope of their provision. This might include extending provision to other people.
Grants from the We Love Lichfield fund can be used for either capital or revenue projects, and can be spent over the course of a year.
Your project must meet one of the following criteria;
- Provide a service for the local area, or for local residents
- Improve the lives of local people
- Be providing a service or facility that would otherwise not be available
- Core/revenue costs
- Equipment costs
- Capital costs
- Training costs
- One off event costs
- Project costs
