Transform Grants

Funding for local community projects

Apply for up to £5,000 for local projects

Our Transform Grants are back for 2018/19, with up to £50,000 up for grabs to support community projects that seek to tackle youth unemployment, promote social inclusion and improve the environment.

Applicants can apply for funding of up to £5,000 to help deliver their projects tackling one or more of these themes, with bonus points for proximity to our train services.

Applications open on 20th August 2018, and are set to close on the 21st September 2018, so you need to be quick to take advantage of this opportunity to make a difference in your area.

Submissions go through an initial review, with the best applications from each area progressing to vote, so it’s important that you clearly explain what your project is about and the benefits it will bring clearly and concisely.

Last year we received over 150 applications, asking for more than £300,000, so competition is fierce. It’s best to get your applications in early.
