Biffa Awards: Community Buildings

Interests Projects under the Community Buildings theme include those which improve buildings at the heart of their communities – such as village halls, community centres and church halls. They can include building refurbishments and internal works to kitchens, toilets, roofs, flooring, windows, doors, and heating systems. Applications from churches must be able to demonstrate a wider community use and benefit – such as youth groups, special interest groups, exercise groups etc.

This could be in the form of letters of support, consultation from community open days or a questionnaire, a village design statement or parish plan. Complete an Expression of Interest online Form, and then apply via the website. It is advised to contact the Grants Officer before applying. No deadlines.

Exclusions Your church must have public access for 104 days a year. You will need to find a third-party contributor(s) to provide 10% of the grant you are applying for. Total project cost must be <£200,000.
