Grant Management

Groundwork Big Lottery Community Spaces project in Kings Heath Birmingham

“We find Groundwork to be efficient, effective, responsive and reactive - they've helped us to ensure that the small grants programme is open, transparent and fair - they're our independent buffer and help us to ensure that there is a good mix of themed projects and a good geographic spread of initiatives.” - Matthew Parsonage, Head of Neighbourhood Investment, Affinity Sutton

Ensure that your grants have a real impact on the ground.

Groundwork is an expert in end to end grant management. If you have funds that you would like to distribute to communities, our specialist staff can help you design your programme and streamline the grant process for you, ensuring maximum impact for your investment.

Our wide experience in managing and delivering grants programmes of all sizes means that whatever your needs, you are in safe hands with Groundwork. This experience includes the £57.5 million Community Spaces programme that has helped more than 900 groups across England to create or improve playgrounds, allotments, gardens, orchards, skate parks and public squares with grants of up to £450K. We also adminster the Tesco Bags of Help scheme that is supporting thousands of community groups a year with grants of up to £5000 each.
