Grants and funding

The council runs grant schemes for community and voluntary groups that benefit Southampton city residents. These pages give information about the grant schemes that are currently open and the grants we have awarded.

These grant schemes are available to voluntary and community groups only. For information on other types of funding and support from the council please see the Further Council Support page and contact the relevant department directly.

Detailed information for each community and voluntary group grant scheme can be found on that scheme’s page. If you have any queries about any of the council’s grant schemes for community and voluntary groups please email us or call 023 8083 4067.
