Funding for community groups consultation – have your say

In February 2019, Derbyshire County Council decided to undertake a comprehensive review of all of the grant funding that they provide, and set out their ambitions to develop a council-wide approach to the allocation of funding in the future.

The review has considered all of the grant funding they currently provide and has identified 62 specific grants which are awarded on a recurring annual basis to a range of Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations. These ‘recurring grants’ have not been subject to review, despite having been made over many years.

Proposals could lead to changes which impact a number of (VCS) organisations operating across the county.

Derbyshire  County Council would therefore like to hear from as many organisations, stakeholders and members of the public on proposals as possible.

A report to Cabinet on 6 December 2021,agenda item 5a,  sets out further information in relation to the proposals. You should read the report before responding to this consultation.

Derbyshire  County Council would be grateful to receive your views to help shape the next stage of the review process.

In the meantime, should you have any queries or require additional information or you need any clarification of the proposals before submitting your response, please do not hesitate to contact the Policy and Research team email

You can share your views by completing the online questionnaire

The deadline for responses is 23 March 2022.
