Grants & funding

Big Ideas grant

The Big Ideas grant can support you to share your passion, innovative ideas and skills with other people who also access our services. You can apply for up to £150 to assist you with making your ideas come to life. Please ask a member of staff for an application pack. If you would like to discuss your idea before applying please call 0800 014 7440 and ask to speak to Woody or to another member of the management team.

Your idea should meet one or more of the 5 ways to wellbeing.

To access the fund please complete the application form or email for further information.

Innovation Fund

The innovation fund is for grants between £500 and £2500 which must be spent within 12 months of the grant being allocated. For smaller grants of under £150 please refer to the Big Ideas Grant above.

If you are currently in receipt of any benefits it is important that you have a conversation with the Department of Work and Pensions in the situation that you are awarded a grant to ensure that you are not penalised in anyway.

We are looking to fund projects from residents (aged 18+) or charities/not for profit groups located within the boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster.

If you are a charity, voluntary or community group with an income of less than £100,000 per annum your application is welcome. The grant is available to support new and innovation ideas, we are therefore unable to provide continuation for funding you are already receiving that is due to come to an end.

For service users of The Alcohol Service, support is available through the Education Training and Employment team (ETE). The big lottery fund has a number of useful documents on their website to support people to plan their future projects.
