Applications sought for the High Sheriff’s Community Intergration Awards

OCF is currently seeking applications to the High Sheriff’s Community Integration Awards. The awards are grants of up to £5,000, given for work that brings together diverse communities of people. In addition to the grant, successful projects will be recognised at an annual awards ceremony hosted by the High Sheriff of Oxfordshire. The closing date is Friday 8th September at midday.

The High Sheriff’s Community Integration Award is a grants round within Oxfordshire Community Foundation’s Delivering Impact programme. Grants are offered for initiatives that bring together communities usually divided by ethnicity, age or social background.

We would like to encourage new groups or collectives to apply to this grants round, even if you have never applied to OCF before. Along with OCVA, we are happy to work with you to help you complete the grant application form and collect the necessary documents.

If you are a larger, established charity, please do also pass this opportunity on to smaller local social or community groups in your networks. We are keen to reach new communities with this funding.

We would encourage eligible groups to start an online application to this fund ASAP. You can apply here.
