Rochford District Council operates a Voluntary Sector Grant scheme which aims to support local voluntary and community organisations that deliver services and/or projects in the Rochford District.

We are now inviting applications for revenue funding for the 2020/21 financial year.

The process by which grant funding will be considered has changed this year, this is reflected in the guidance provided and the application form. Please click on the 'guidance notes' link in Related Content for further information on submitting an application.

Applications open on Thursday 12th March. All applicants must complete the online application form located in the Related Content section along with the required financial information (see application form for information) via the application form or post by Friday 10th April.

If you would like support to understand the Castlepoint and Rochford Health and Wellbeing Strategy and Action plan and how you can relate this to your application there will be 2 open sessions held at the Civic Suite, Hockley Road Rayleigh on Wednesday 25th March at 4pm and 5.30pm. You do not need to register for these sessions but we ask you to please arrive 5 minutes before the session is due to start.
