Grant Applications Open – Community Diversity Grants 2024

Community groups are being urged to apply for the latest round of Community Diversity Grants being made available.


The borough’s Equality Forum has re-opened the fund for applications and is offering a total of £2,500. Any new or small community voluntary organisation can apply for a maximum grant of £500 to help with things such as developing the organisation, holding events and increasing employment opportunities of protected characteristic communities in the borough.


Applicants will provide innovate and imaginative approaches to promoting inclusion and commit to tackling inequality and discrimination locally. Organisations can apply by downloading the application form from Wokingham Borough Council’s website.


Once completed, this should be returned by email to [email protected].


These groups should support:


  • Women and young girls

  • LGBT+ community organisations

  • Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities

  • Religious or faith groups

  • Older of younger people

  • Disabled people/communities

A panel from the forum, which has more than 30 members from a diverse range of groups, will decide the successful applications.


Applications must be submitted by 5pm on Thursday 8 February.
