Solihull Community Buildings Fund

As part of the UK Government’s investment in the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF), Solihull Council is seeking to award a minimum of five capital grants to improve access and use of independently owned community buildings in the borough. This can include community and youth centres, village halls, as well as faith and school buildings that can provide regular community access and use.

There is a total fund of £250,000 with a minimum of five grants to be awarded. There is no maximum or minimum amount that organisations can apply for, but projects must demonstrate
value for money.

The fund aims to improve public access to community buildings in Solihull, particularly in areas where there is a scarcity of facilities such as community centres.

Only capital expenditure can be supported, but we can support projects that might do any of the following:

  • Expand the time during the week that communities can access existing buildings;
  • Expand the existing offer, through the addition of new facilities or storage;
  • Expand the capacity of a building, including through the addition of an extension or more toilet facilities;
  • Adapt buildings to make them more accessible to people with sensory needs or disabilities.
Closing date for applications is July 31st, 2024.
