The Little Ideas Fund

Could you make something amazing happen?

If you’ve ever had an idea to do something great locally, The Little Ideas Fund is here to help make that happen!

What Is Bountagu’s ‘Little Ideas Fund’?

We are providing awards for projects that help improve the lives of residents in this area.

How Much Can I Ask For?

Up to £250 to run or launch a small local event or activity.

How Easy Is It To Apply?

You fill out a really simple form (we can help) to tell us a bit about yourself and your idea. (Download the form below).

Then we’ll contact you for a more detailed chat, consider your application, and hopefully approve it. That’s it!

What Are The 3 Little Rules?


Your idea hopes to improve life in the Bountagu area.


You must be a Bountagu resident (or your project will mainly benefit Bountagu residents).


Your idea must match one of our priority areas below;

  • Children and Young People
  • Older People 50+
  • Environment (Outdoor Spaces, Community Safety)
  • Developing Opportunities (Business, Jobs, Skills)
  • Now… What’s YOUR idea?

    How many ideas can I propose?

    It’s great you have lots of ideas!

    We think though, that a good idea deserves proper focus, so we’ll only look at two ideas from you in any three-month period.

    What is this funding for?

    We want to see what schemes our creative and passionate neighbours (YOU!) come up with.

    Have you thought of a way to improve something in the area? We want to inspire and support you to strengthen our community.

    What if my idea doesn't fit?

    Do you need more than £250 to make your idea a reality, or think it might not meet our rules? Want to apply as a group, organisation or business?
    We may know another way to help, so get in touch anyway!

    You fill out a really simple form (we can help) to tell us a bit about yourself and your idea.

    We’re really looking forward to helping you bring your ideas to life!
