Greggs the bakers are offering grants up to £2000 for not-for-profit organisations who are developing local community projects.

Greggs say they are interested in projects that improve resilience within the community, which can include sessional activities or respite support, equipment for sessional activities, trips and residential breaks. They say they are also interested in new approaches and innovative ideas as well as sustainable ways of supporting communities.

All projects must support a community such as

  • people who are disabled or suffering chronic illness,
  • people living in poverty,
  • voluntary carers,
  • homeless people,
  • isolated older people,
  • people with other demonstrable significant need.

Applications close on 23 February 2020 and Greggs will announce their decision on 5 May 2020.
