Get involved and take part in Your SHIRE Community Grant

The Your SHIRE Community Grant is a new approach to helping local groups and organisations to provide community services and activities that support vulnerable people, promote independence and reduce demand for public services.

Your SHIRE Community Grants are different from other grants as residents are invited to comment on project proposals and those that apply for the funding play a key role in deciding collectively who will receive funding.

Leicestershire County Council (LCC) has made available £160,000 per year for this grant fund. Grants of up to £2,500 are available for projects to establish or enhance community services and activities that will make a difference to local people and communities in Leicestershire in relation to one of the Your SHIRE Themes:
