Ward budget scheme

Councillors use the ward budget scheme to support projects run by local groups for the benefit of their communities.

Each ward has a one-off pot of money of £30,000 and groups can bid for a portion of this to support their projects.

Who can apply

Community and voluntary groups, charities or other organisations that provide benefit to the residents of their local area can apply.

We encourage proposals for funding from groups which are already fund-raising so that we can support a wider range of projects.

How to apply

Contact your local ward councillors with your proposal.

Ward councillors will then agree the proposals to be put forward for funding. All proposals for funding are consulted on and published online.

What kind of projects can be funded

Projects must take place in Royal Greenwich. They can range in size from purchasing items for local or voluntary groups to supporting community events to encourage people to get together.

We also ran a similar scheme from 2014 to 2018 which supported over 130 individual projects across the whole borough, delivering a wide range of environmental and community benefits.
