Peterborough Communities Fund


The Peterborough Communities Fund is an exciting opportunity for people to make a real difference in their communities.

We’re looking to fund projects that get people involved with their local areas, and bring communities together. We’d like to support new projects - or ones ready to expand - that will make a lasting difference.

The Peterborough Communities Fund is open for applications

We welcome bids of all sizes - whether you need just a few hundred pounds or a much larger sum to develop something bigger. Groups can apply for up to £20,000. There is no lower limit.

It is a rolling programme so there is no deadline for applications, the fund will run for as long as there is money available.

Applications are invited from organisations from the voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors, based in or outside of Peterborough. We particularly welcome joint bids and ideas with longevity and innovation.

The Communities Fund has been made possible as a result of Peterborough’s status as an Integration Area and Central Government funding for the Integrated Communities Strategy.
