The UKSPF Community Resilience Grants scheme is available for charities, voluntary organisations, social enterprises and parish councils to bid into. Funding for revenue and capital projects is available, with a maximum of £25,000 being available for capital projects.

The grants programme is managed by ourselves on behalf of Derbyshire Dales District Council.

It is part of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and Rural England Prosperity Fund (REPF) which was awarded to DDDC.

The fund aims to enable local organisations to deliver projects that maintain key rural services, facilities and community infrastructure; boost community and volunteering capacity to tackle locally identified challenges; enhance social inclusion and resilience; support post-pandemic recovery and help maintain safe and healthy communities; and take local action on climate change to help reduce carbon emissions and promote behaviour change.

Any organisation wishing to apply for funding must first register on the District Council’s website by going to
