Following Cheshire West and Chester Council’s announcement on the commencement of the 2024 Community Chest small grants scheme (up to £500), Cheshire Community Action is now inviting applications from local community groups and organisations.


The initiative aims to deliver positive outcomes for individuals and communities across Cheshire West and Chester. This small grants scheme is being managed by Cheshire Community Action (CCA).

The funding criteria for the 2024 Community Chest grant scheme are aligned with the overarching goals of promoting well-being, supporting carers and fostering physical health improvements among local residents. Applicants are encouraged to thoroughly review these criteria to ensure eligibility. The scheme is light-touch, with a quick turnaround and is aimed at smaller organisations or activities.


Please refer to the notes on the grant criteria in the first instance. If your group or organisation meets the criteria and you’re interested in applying for a small grant from the Community Chest, please email for an application form or call 01244 40022 and speak to Adele Rylance.

Please note that there is no application deadline, but the scheme will close once all funds have been allocated.
