About Worthing Community Chest
The Community Chest administers grants in Worthing. Up to £1,500 available to voluntary groups, charities, Social Enterprises and Not For Profit groups in Worthing.
The aim of the grant is to support grass root level groups in an efficient and productive way. We understand how a small amount of funding can really help a voluntary group carry out its valuable work. Unlike many funders we accept applications from groups working in many different areas of voluntary work and are not influenced by legislation.
We give grants to buy equipment, pay for outings, assist with venue hire, transport hire and support training that will in turn help others. Whilst many funders have narrow guidelines surrounding what they will and will not fund, we understand that the needs of community-based voluntary groups can be complex and do not always ‘tick a box’.
Applications for grants are assessed by trained and supported volunteers from community groups who have received a grant in the previous year. We believe that those working in the community can draw on their own experiences to help support other community groups.
