The Greggs Foundation Community Grants Programme continues to have a significant impact on local organisations throughout the UK.  We aim to support local charities making a real difference in their local area and in May of this year, we were delighted to award grants to nine new community charities in our latest funding round.   

We have awarded grants to the following organisations:

  • Hope St Mellons: Known for their community-centered initiatives, Hope St Mellons can further their mission to enhance local wellbeing. 

  • Bullion Community Resource Centre: This resource centre offers a variety of support services, and the grant will help them expand their reach. 

  • Cornforth Partnership: Dedicated to improving the quality of life in Cornforth, this organisation will use the grant to bolster their numerous community projects. 

  • Durham Area Youth: Focused on youth development, Durham Area Youth will utilise the grant to enhance their programmes and outreach efforts.

We know just how crucial the role of core funding is in enabling charities to focus on delivering their essential services without the constant worry of managing central costs. The Greggs Foundation is proud to offer grants of up to £20,000 per year for a maximum of two years.  Our core funding grants can be used to cover salaries, rent or even maintenance costs to ensure the continuation of services.  This financial support is important for maintaining stability for many charitable organisations.   

I’m sure you will join us in wishing congratulations to all of the organisations successful in this funding round. We look forward to seeing the positive impact of their work throughout local communities in 2024 and beyond.
