Small Grants

The Derbyshire Voluntary Action Small Grant Scheme is open for applications from small groups for funds to cover running costs

During these COVID19-affected times, there will be no closing date for applications.  We will aim to get back to you with a decision within two weeks of receipt of your form.  The maximum amount you can apply for is £1,000, but grants awarded are likely to be in the region of £500-£600.  We will pause or close applications if necessary.

Please be aware that groups can only receive funds from this scheme once in any 12 month period – therefore if you have previously received a Derbyshire Voluntary Action Small Grant you have to wait a year before applying again.  Please contact us if you are unsure when you last received a Small Grant.


To Apply
Please complete the Small Grant Application Form and return to Derbyshire Voluntary Action.
