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:

  • Mental ill-health – supporting people to cope with and manage mental health issues and enable early intervention.
  • Addiction – Support people with drug, alcohol, and substance abuse-related issues.
  • Caring responsibilities – supporting people caring for others.
  • Reducing loneliness – provide older people with opportunities to access and participate in their local community to prevent isolation.
  • Supporting recovery – supporting therapy, advice, counselling, and practical help to aid recovery and improve lives.
  • Supporting families and parenting.
  • Addressing physical ill-health and disability.
  • Active lifestyles – promoting the benefits of healthy living and eating. Helping to counter obesity, preventable diseases, and mental ill-health.
  • Domestic abuse – supporting people experiencing domestic abuse by providing advice, practical help and/or temporary accommodation.

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