Just under a fortnight left to apply for a Platinum Jubilee grant
Published: Wednesday, May 11, 2022
There’s just under a fortnight left for local groups and organisations to apply for a share of the council’s £20,000 Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Micro-Grant Fund.
To commemorate the 70th Anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen's accession to the throne, a £20,000 fund has been established which provides grants of between £250 to £500 to support community-run jubilee-related events and up to £1,000 to deliver larger legacy projects to mark this historic royal anniversary.
Events should be inclusive and creative to bring residents together over the four-day Jubilee Bank Holiday between June 2 and June 5. Legacy projects could include producing a community mural or enhancing a public space or garden.
To qualify for a Jubilee grant, proposed projects must also have other additional funding or in-kind donations.
The deadline for applications is Monday, May 23. To Find out more and apply online please visit the council’s website.
- Wandsworth residents are also being encouraged to organise street parties to mark the Jubilee and the council has waived the usual £60 fee for people organising a street party throughout May and June.
