Volunteering

Voluntary sector grants and support

One of the ways we support the voluntary and community sector is through the Corporate Grants Scheme.

This scheme is designed to support Hillingdon's local groups and ensure that a wide range of services are provided locally for residents. All grant recipients are seen as strategic partners, and the council works with them to develop, design and implement services. 

The groups that are funded cover key service areas that the council wishes to see offered in the borough. This provides consistency for residents accessing services as well as stability for the recipients of funding. 

If you are not in receipt of a corporate grant and wish to apply, you will need to contact the team for an application pack. It is advised that you discuss your proposals with a grants officer before making an application.

You can get in touch with a grants officer by emailing: 

The process starts in September with an application round and the final decisions are made in December by Cabinet members. 

Please note:  This team is not able to assist businesses or individuals with grants.  Information for businesses can be found on our guidance and support for businesses page.

If you are awarded corporate funding

We will expect:

  • a simple set of terms and conditions to meet
  • some negotiable aims and targets to achieve during the year
  • you to work with us and support our priorities
  • a willingness to provide us with your progress and achievements, including visits and written financial and narrative reports
