Community Chest Fund 

Community Chest grants of up to £1,000 are available for local groups that want to deliver short-term or one-off activities which contribute towards the Wick Award objectives;

  • Build community connections

Funding Round deadlines for 2018: February 10, May 12, August 3, November 2.


The Community Chest grant provides funding for projects and events which make Hackney Wick even better for residents. The projects or events should be either short-term or one-off activity rather than long-term activities or service provision.

Community Chest grants are available to local groups or organisations that want to deliver short-term or one-off events. The groups can be either constituted voluntary sector organisations or other types of structured groups of local residents, such as a residents association or gardening project.

Structured groups of local residents are groups of residents who have formed for a particular purpose; for example, a community gardening group or a group of residents organising a community event in a local park. Structured groups of local residents could be an established group who have been meeting for many years or who have recently formed for a one-off event.


Organisations must have an annual income of less than £100K to be eligible to apply for a Community Chest grant. Please note that 50% of the grant funding available for Community Chests will be reserved for organisations with an annual income of less than £50,000.


Hard copy or Microsoft Word version of the form is available on request from Polly Mann at or on telephone number 07482 320992.
