Round 3 of funding opened on 1st July and will be focused on ideas and projects from grassroots individuals and groups who have plans for helping the area in the longer term. There will be 10 grants of £500 to award during this round.

Do you want to be active in your community to help build a stronger and more resilient Keyham?

A second stage of Community Sparks grants have been made possible thanks to funding by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall. They will again be delivered by POP (Plymouth Octopus Project) and supported by Plymouth City Council. Previously they were financed by the Home Office’s Safer Keyham grant and Department of Education funding. The project end date for this new round of funding must be no later than 31 March, 2023.

We want to make sure everyone has the chance to participate:

  • Do you have suggestions on how to improve your community?
  • Do you have ideas on how to support children, young people and families in Keyham?

How Do I Get Involved?

  • You can apply for funds to assist you to deliver projects/ideas in the community.
  • We will support you through the simple grant application process, there is a quick turnaround and YOU can make things happen straight away.

And the funding is not just for groups or organisations – individuals who just want to do something in and for their community are encouraged to apply too.
