Community Development Fund

Community Grants

How it works

The Community Development Fund has been set up to help fund communities working together, on local projects, which have a positive effect in their area of Herefordshire and Shropshire.

Connexus welcome applications for funds and assistance for new and existing projects that meet one or more of the following criteria:


Benefits our tenants and develops links with the wider community
Encourages interaction between different generations within the whole community
Leads to activities people want, but no one currently provides
Generates training or employment opportunities

Grants up to £5,000


Better management of open spaces To enhance wildlife, clean up derelict space or get people running their own community gardens
Community groups Examples include sports teams, youth groups, parent and toddler groups to encourage new skills e.g. computer skills
Skills development for young people Basic mechanics, basic cookery or home maintenance, as long as the skills lead to employment or improved life skills
