We award grants to community and voluntary groups for charitable purposes that make a genuine difference to the lives of people in Surrey.

In 2022 the Community Foundation for Surrey will be running our funding rounds a little differently so that it is easier for applicants to see what sorts of things we are hoping to fund.

The application deadlines for 2022 with be themed, meaning charities and voluntary sector organisations will need to apply to us at the appropriate time for us to consider their application. These themes are Young People, Wellbeing and Equity & Inclusion.

This theme supports:

  • Exclusion – support projects providing opportunities for the most disadvantaged to develop their skills, confidence, and abilities to live independently and to participate in their community.
  • Addressing disadvantage for specific communities.
  • Improve access to services by supporting projects which remove barriers to participation.
  • Homelessness and housing – projects supporting people who are homeless or insecurely housed and the causes of homelessness.
  • Advice and support to help people navigate the challenges of economic disadvantage.
  • Developing the basic skills which lead to employment, including IT skills, soft skills and confidence building to overcome barriers.
  • Disability – supporting social inclusion for people with long-term illness or disability.
  • Organisations supporting those living in deprivation through access to emergency food, home supplies, practical advice, and support.
  • Supporting projects which work to prevent crime, reduce re-offending, or promote rehabilitation.
  • Supporting projects which support the victims of crime.
  • Promoting social cohesion.
  • Supporting infrastructure and community development work to build strong communities.

Through all of our themes we are interested in capacity building and engagement with the environment.
