Community groups from across the UK have been applying for a slice of £81,500 funding from the Grassroots Giving programme.

In the past three years, Grassroots Giving has donated a total of £241,500 to 483 small organisations. Last year we rewarded 162 groups with pots of £500 to help them continue their amazing work in local neighbourhoods across the country. We also uncovered more fantastic stories of hard work and dedication, UK wide, to add to the ones we saw in 2013 and 2014.

Details of all our winners so far can be found elsewhere on this website.

In 2016 we will be handing out pots of £500 to another 163 deserving causes.
