Know Your Neighbourhood Fund - round two open for applications

Voluntary creative organisations in Fenland can apply for funding to deliver targeted creative activities that aim to reduce loneliness and isolation.

Know Your Neighbourhood Fund

Creative Lives is offering project grants of up to £10,000, and partnership grants of up to £20,000, for voluntary creative groups to promote and deliver targeted creative activities to support people at risk of loneliness and isolation in 27 designated areas across England, including Fenland.

Through the Know Your Neighbourhood Fund, provided by the Government's Department of Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) with support from Arts Council England, support is also available for creative activities that build connections and a sense of belonging within the community.

Round two of the fund follows the completion of the pilot round across five priority areas earlier this year.

There is a separate application process for project grants and partnership grants. Partnership grants will follow a two-stage application process, wherein groups must first submit an expression of interest before submitting a full application.

Online information sessions for interested applicants are being held on:

  • Partnership grants: Wednesday, 6 September, 11am-12noon.
  • Project grants: Monday, 11 September, 11am-12noon.

The deadline for partnership grant expressions of interest is 21 September, with the project grant application deadline on 5 October.
