Sheffield City Council’s Cohesion Fund: Now Open


Sheffield City Council is pleased to relaunch the Cohesion Fund for the financial year 19/20 to support community cohesion in the city.

The fund is for existing or new activity that helps enhance and promote community relations and brings people together in a community.

The purpose of the fund is to help partnerships and community groups in the city with their community cohesion work.

Fund Priorities

  1. Support community infrastructure to enhance community cohesion in the city
  2. Support groups who want to look through the cohesion lens (ie thinking of how to bring different people together first before planning an activity) when delivering their activity and services.
  3. Promote positive community cohesion stories and activities

There are two forms, a shorter form for applications from £250 – £2,000 (Small Grants form) and a longer form for applications from £2,000 – £30,000 (Big Grants form).

Forms are attached, and should be on the Council website very soon as well.
