Funding opportunities

Funding opportunities

We care about our communities and the people who live in them. The Braintree District and Greenfields Community Fund supports voluntary and community groups in the Braintree district.

Supporting the community

The charitable fund has been set up and jointly funded by Braintree District Council and Greenfields to help improve the health, well-being and life chances of local people.

The fund provides voluntary and community organisations with the opportunity to apply for grants over £10,000 but under £40,000. Projects need to have clear outcomes linked to improving health and wellbeing, increasing aspirations and opportunities of young people, or developing skills through training. The application process is in two stages, with an Expression of Interest (EOI) being Stage One. The EOIs are then considered by a Grants Panel, who decide which application should go through to the next stage, which is an invitation to complete a full application.

The fund is managed and administered by the Essex Community Foundation, which is an independent charitable trust. Visit the website here: Essex Community Foundation
