Community services

Updates about changes to our various community services and grants as a result of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Community services

We operate two funding schemes for voluntary and community groups to support community life in the borough.


Annual Grants

Annual Grants are available to specific organisations to help fund core running costs of the project. Annual grants will be subject to an agreed Community Grant Agreement for the year of the award. The organisation and the council will work together to follow this agreement. 

Applications for Annual Grants have now closed and will reopen in July.

Applications are considered annually in November.


Small Community Grants

Welwyn Hatfield Small Community Grants are available to community and voluntary organisations from a range of sectors including music, dance, drama, sport, youth, health and many more.

The Community Grant funding is for projects that make a positive impact on the community.

Small community grants have now closed and will reopen in April.

Applications will be considered biannually in July and February.
