The Small Grants Scheme is a funding programme for community projects that aim to embed art, culture and heritage at the heart of the developments planned in Old Oak and Park Royal.
OPDC have allocated £150,000 from the Great Place Scheme of which you can apply for a grant between £500 and £5000 to fund projects and activities in Old Oak and Park Royal centred around arts, culture and heritage.
These grants will support amazing ideas generated by community organisations who are unlikely to be able to access other forms of funding.
We will ensure that grant recipients will be supported throughout, with access to resources, surgeries and advice.
Our objectives for this scheme are to:
- celebrate local talent and new partnerships
- harness the creative interests of local people and voluntary organisations
- empower local people and organisations to support and develop creative talent and ideas
Through this scheme we hope to create a positive difference to communities by generating locally relevant cultural activity.
The first successful applicants of the scheme were announced in July 2019. Read about these projects.
