Posted by Shofi Fida Monday, January 23, 2012 1 comments
The Social Action Fund is a new grant Fund of over £20 million, managed by us on behalf of the Office for Civil Society. The Fund’s second window opened 9 Jan 2012 and will close noon 3 Feb 2012.
The Fund aims to inspire organisations to create new social action opportunities through people giving what they have, be that their time, their money, or their assets, knowledge and skills.
The Fund will support social action applications that cover the following themes:
  • Encourage people to come together in their locality to support each other: Projects that include plans to scale proven models to regional or national levels, or replicate them in other localities. Some priority will be given to models that encourage those who do not traditionally get involved as volunteers
  • Focus on the different life stages of volunteering
The Social Action Fundis open to applications to fund social action projects in England from civil society organisations, public sector bodies and businesses with a track record of delivering social action programmes.
Please note that you must first ensure your proposal meets the new eligibility criteria for the Fund prior to applying. If you were unsuccessful in the previous round please refer to the guidance notes.
