Awards for All – (AWA) is a grant source mainly for small organisations that are looking for between £500 and £10,000 for their project. AWA is a partnership of all of the Main Funding Bodies identified below. It provides one door to applicants for small grants from these bodies. Awards for All, therefore, covers all of the themes of communities, arts, sports, heritage, education and the environment.
The main aims of Awards for All are to fund projects which involve groups in: bringing people together; increasing involvement; improving the quality of life, and; helping groups to become well organised. AWA’s main priority is to help small local groups. It can, however, support branches of larger organisations, as well as schools, health bodies and other statutory bodies, but it will always put small groups first.
