Community Funding Opportunities

Applications for RBH community funding have now closed for 2016. Thank you to all those who have submitted applications. We'll let you know when applications for next year are open.

RBH has launched a new programme of funding for our member and community groups. Community led organisations are invited to submit funding applications for activities that have a direct impact on our neighbourhoods. All applications must be supported by one or more RBH tenant members.

To ensure that our community funding is smarter, the projects we fund will have a focus on outcomes for the community that directly link to RBH priorities. These are:

  • employment and skills.
  • support services, advice and financial inclusion
  • digital inclusion
  • health and wellbeing
  • social Inclusion
  • families, children and young people
  • improving green spaces
  • mutuality across neighbourhoods

Here are some examples of the projects we would like to support

Support into Employment/Digital Inclusion –  These are projects that that would support people to gain employment? Your project could look to support people to learn how to develop their digital skills to access job searches, help to prepare CVs or complete applications. Maybe your project would focus on confidence building or increasing people’s chances of a successful inter­view through guidance or providing the right clothes to wear for an interview.

Health and Wellbeing/Social Inclusion – These are projects that could encourage improvements to people’s health or that would help people to live more fulfilling lives. Your project could provide opportunities for people to become more active, learn new skills, overcome isolation or develop existing interests.
