Community Together Fund

Run by the Community Liaison team, the UWE Bristol Community Together Fund offers grants for projects linking students and staff with community organisations.

About the fund

UWE Bristol wants to support projects that enhance the relationship between students and permanent city residents. The Community Together fund offers grants of up to £250 for projects linking students, local residents, community organisations and local agencies.

The remit is very broad and we are encouraging interested applicants to use their imaginations. Environmental projects, community events, and improved communication could all be relevant, and ongoing projects could also apply. We look forward to receiving applications from local community representatives as well as student organisations.

We particularly welcome applications involving collaboration between students and local residents.

Criteria for applications

Grants of up to £250 are available to fund community projects/activities within Bristol and South Gloucestershire:

  • Grants can be used to part-fund a wider community project
  • There is no deadline for applications – grants are issued on a rolling basis
  • Successful applicants can re-apply each term

Applications must demonstrate how the initiative is likely to make a positive difference to the local community.

On the completion of your project/activity you submit a report measuring its success.

How to apply

Please complete and return the Community Together Fund application form (DOC).

Funding decisions are made by UWE Bristol's Community Liaison Team.
