The LDP micro-grant programme is open access for local people who have a great idea to get their local community more active. The grants are between £50 – £2,500.

A key principle of the LDP is to put local people in the driving seat, recognising them as the most important assets in any community. We want to invest in local passionate people who want to use physical activity to make a positive difference in their neighbourhood, creating social movements that make a big difference to the lives of inactive people. We expect most activities will happen at a very local level on specific streets or estates, or within a specific community of interest such as mums with pre-school children or older people with dementia.

The application process is short and simple, and decisions are made quickly.

Before applying, please download and read the guidance notes.

Please note: micro-grants are currently available only to community groups and organisations in Basildon, Colchester and Tendring. The programme will be opened up to all disadvantaged communities in Essex during 2020.
