Grants for voluntary and community groups

We recognise and value the contribution that community and voluntary organisations (CVOs) make to their communities. One of the ways we support CVOs is through grant aid.

We have a limited amount of funds available to help community and voluntary groups, which provide a project or service that benefit residents and communities across Oxford.

You can apply for a grant if your project does one or more of the following:

  • Promotes community activities and cohesion
  • Gets more people involved with the arts
  • Tackles anti-social behaviour and improves community safety
  • Promotes and protects the natural environment and biodiversity
  • Tackles social inequality
