Community Matters Fund is now open!

Apply for up to £50,000 over two years!

Western Power Distribution has teamed up with Localgiving to deliver its Community Matters Fund

The fund will provide £500,000 to support charitable organisations in their response to holiday hunger. Applications are encouraged from organisations delivering projects that offer both short-term interventions to stop holiday hunger and longer term support to help reduce food poverty.

Western Power Distribution distributes electricity to 8 million customers across an area covering the Midlands, South Wales and South West. Funding is available for non-profit and statutory organisations based in these locations. You can check if your organisation is eligible here.

The programme is now live and accepting applications until 14th June 2022. All applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by 27th June 2022. Projects must be delivered and funding spent by 31st December 2022. The application form is an online process; however, you can download the application questions below, so that you can prepare your answers beforehand.

If you are an existing Localgiving member then simply log into your account to apply. A link to the application form can be found under the ‘My Grants’ section of your account displayed on the left hand side of your dashboard. If you are not a Localgiving member then apply via the button below. If you are successful with your application, you will also receive a complimentary Localgiving annual membership.
