Nationwide Building Society Community Grant

Everyone deserves a place fit to call home. Yet with a shortage of new properties, outdated rental stock and a lack of support for the vulnerable, many people end up in unsuitable, unsafe, or unaffordable accommodation. Nationwide Building Society community grants programme gives a chance for local organisations with great housing solutions to apply for grants of up to £50,000. 

Who can apply - This fund is open to registered UK charities, community land trusts and housing cooperatives. We welcome partnership bids but the lead organisation must be an eligible entity. We would like to see partnerships with statutory organisations, housing associations, companies limited by guarantee with charitable objectives, community interest companies, constituted community or voluntary sector groups.

Organisations from across the south west (Wiltshire & Swindon, Hampshire & Isle of Wight, Dorset, Somerset, Devon, Cornwall, Bristol, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire) can apply through this website.
