With the introduction of the new WHSmith Community Grants, the WHSmith Trust is now offering grants of up to £500 to voluntary organisations and schools from the proceeds of the compulsory carrier bag levies across the UK.
Grants are awarded every six months to charities, schools and community groups of any size, provided they support the community in the UK.
The following community groups may apply for WHSmith Community Grants:
- Registered or Exempt Charities
- Voluntary/Community Groups (constituted)
- Schools and pre-schools
To apply for a Community Grant, fill out the application on the WHSmith website.
There are two annual application rounds. The deadline for the current funding round is the 31st March 2017. The next deadline will be the 30th September 2017
