Being rooted in the community enables you to identify the issues that matter most. You are best placed to engage with and support local people and be that difference by addressing the problems they care about.

We also know how hard it can be to get support and funding to deliver those small projects that make such a big difference.

The Aviva Community Fund offers support, advice and funding

Our friends at the Aviva Community Fund offer support, practical advice and funding from £1,000 up to £25,000, to help many people make a lasting difference in their communities.

Don’t miss out on your chance to secure funding for your project or group – submissions are now open and will close at midday on 9th October 2018.

How to submit your community project

This year sees 3 new categories to choose from:

  • Skills for Life - projects helping communities and individuals improve their lives by
    learning useful new skills

  • Health and Wellbeing - projects helping people take control of their physical and mental
    health

  • Environment - projects working to improve their natural surroundings.


For the first time, through a partnership with Crowdfunder UK, you also have the chance to receive funding from people supporting your project entry.
