The Fund invests between £250,000 and £2 million in community-based, locally-led organisations which are providing support and services to create positive change in their communities.

The Fund aims to improve the quality of life of local individuals, particularly those who are vulnerable and disadvantaged, and to enhance community engagement and cohesion by empowering people to develop locally-determined solutions to challenges and opportunities.
